Discussion Pods

So often great conversations inspired by presentations must be cut short because of time constraints, thus we invite conference presenters and audience members to extend these dialogues in our Discussion Pods.

Discussion Pods are dedicated open seating areas designed to encourage one-on-one or small group conversations. Four pods will be found in Regency South Ballroom A and each will be clearly marked. Presenters may reserve ONE 30-minute slot per presentation to interact with attendees regarding their work, although participation is voluntary. Those who opt to utilize a discussion pod should ask their presider to announce this planned time during their introductory remarks.

Please note: Discussion pods may not be used for any commercial or for-profit purpose.


Discussion Pods may be reserved according to the following schedule:

Thursday, October 24
