Our Technical Program Committee has been working to create sessions that can be the most beneficial to our attendees. Below is the preliminary list of ACM Speakers that will be giving Podium Presentations about their experiences, research and knowledge with you. We will be continuing to recruit people and organizations to offer podium presentations as well as poster presentations at the conference.
