Technical Session Matrix

  Each technical talk will last 30 minutes, with a 25 minute presentation followed by 5 minutes of questions and answers. We will start and end on time so that the parallel sessions are synchronized. The session lead may open the session with brief remarks about the theme. Presentations will start promptly, managed by the session lead.

'A' session venue is Boeing Auditorium. 'B' session venue is 1xxx FXB.
