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).

The deadline to submit is Wednesday, September 4, 2019.
