Choose Virtual Tracks – Thursday 2017

For each time slot below, rate the 4 sessions you would most like to see included in the virtual conference. (The virtual conference will include 2 tracks during the main conference and 1 during the pre-conference). Select '1' for your favorite, '2' for your second favorite and so on.
