Conventional conferences are usually fun and an opportunity to take a break from the work routine, travel to the conference destination, network with fellow engineers, eat at nice restaurants, etc.
But conventional conferences are also expensive and time consuming - a busy engineer can usually attend a maximum of one or two per year and sometimes none because of time and/or budget constrains.
Introducing the concept of an online conference; no need to travel, inexpensive (free for early registrations) and the opportunity to attend high quality technical sessions from the comfort of your office (or almost anywhere else you see fit).
Step 1: Register. Early registrations are free.
Step 2: Make sure to remember your login information (email address and password) to gain access to the conference on May 20, 2020.
Step 3: On May 20, come back to the conference site and login. Watch as many sessions as you'd like, ask questions to the speakers and maybe take a minute to send us your feedback so we can improve the next online conference.
