All conference registrants are welcome to attend the panel discussions, which are in parallel with technical sessions, at no additional charge. Panels are expected to be 80 minutes in duration.
At each panel, the panel moderator/organizer and panelists will each give a short 5-10 minute presentation/speech and then they’ll open the floor to the audience for an open panel discussion and Q&A. For the panels, three or five panelists (including the panel moderator) are preferred.
All panel moderators and panelists must register for the conference. However, a registration discount will be applied. Reduced registration fee for each moderator and panelist is $300 (unless they are authors as well and have paper(s) in the conference. In that case, they would need to pay the full registration fee). The deadline for the early reduced registration fee of $300 is May 1, 2018. After May 1, 2018, the reduced registration fee for the panel moderators and panelists will be $350.
