Education Sessions are typically 45 minutes long (some may be longer) and are not accompanied by formal research papers, instead they focus more on case studies, best practices, issue reviews, etc. These sessions are presented as lectures, panels, and/or discussions by subject area experts and will provide you with valuable information in a multitude of areas.
Pre-conference Tutorials will be held on Monday, September 11, and are three-hour courses that fully immerse attendees in a single area of focus. Attending a Pre-conference Tutorial builds a foundation for improved learning and understanding for the duration of the conference.
The Poster Session is a collection of work highlighting significant research conducted by companies and universities. Posters will be on display at CAMX from September 11-14, and authors will be available during certain times for discussion and questions.
