Choose Virtual Tracks – Wednesday 2015

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. You do not need to enter a 2nd or 3rd or 4th choice if you do not see any additional sessions of interest.

You may skip choices for time slots altogether where there are no sessions of interest. After you have entered your choices for the day, use the submit button at the bottom of the page to submit your choices. Use the 'day-of'week' menu below to choose sessions for other days.
