Session Types and Descriptions
Concurrent Session: These 60-minute sessions are meant to present real applications, real results, and real solutions based on quality principles or theory that can be implemented immediately. These types of presentations provide a high degree of value to the hundreds of people that attend the conference.
Workshop: These continuous (2 hours and 15 minutes) sessions encompass two consecutive session timeslots on the program. Workshops should address a topic in a manner that leads participants from an identified beginning point through a logical and clearly identified end point with the expansion of the related body of knowledge. Hands-on learning activities should be presented as part of the workshop to demonstrate and reinforce the concepts presented.
After 5 Session: (Monday Evening): These exciting and innovative sessions are less formal than concurrent sessions and cover a myriad of topics that may or may not relate directly to quality in the traditional sense. The 75-minute sessions include a social component, which adds to the level of interaction between the facilitator and the participants, as well as the participants and their peers. These sessions will not be reviewed by technical proposal reviewers and will be selected solely by the Technical Program Committee (TPC).
Flip Session: Based on the “flipped classroom” model (where students review recorded lectures online before each class session so that time in class can be spent on discussions, hands-on learning exercises, etc.), flip sessions are intended to provide conference attendees with an opportunity to customize their conference experience. As opposed to passively listening to experts lecture about a topic, as is typically the case in traditional conference sessions, these interactive sessions provide time for attendees to practice using the tools/methods described by experts in online, recorded lectures where activities often involve conference attendees working in conjunction with one another. This type of session format also provides attendees with an opportunity to engage directly with the experts one-on-one or in groups to obtain answers to questions about the tool/method they are learning.
The deadline to submit is Friday, August 17, 2018.
