Panel and Workgroup Descriptions:

The conference format will focus on four key topic areas presented first by a panel in a plenary session, followed by facilitated workgroups comprised of a panel of speakers to address and explore each aspect of the topic in greater depth. It is our desire that this “open dialogue” format involving over 75 adoption professionals will be the cornerstone to compiling recommendations for a concrete action plan to be presented following the conference. For detailed descriptions about each workgroup, please click on each day’s itinerary lineup.
