The scoring process takes place from December 14, 2019 - January 20, 2020 with all applicants being informed of the status of their submission via email by February 1, 2020 with further instruction on the next steps provided at that time. All abstracts are fairly graded and purely chosen “by the industry, for the industry”.

The Technical Conference will offer attendees the best business critical content spanning the entire value chain with a mix of individual technical presentations and panel sessions.
