Workshop sessions, scheduled for Monday and Tuesday, will be four-hour lectures.

These sessions may include interactive tabletop exercises, computer simulations, and group activities, with classrooms set to accommodate 100 to 200 students.

Only one instructor per workshop is accepted, and internet access is not available.

Classroom sessions are 1 hour and 45-minute lectures scheduled during the regular conference on Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday.

Like the workshops, only one instructor per classroom is accepted, and internet access is not provided.
