To ensure dynamic and robust education that meets the needs of a diverse audience of UAS professionals, we’re planning to have a variety of formats: panel discussions, case studies, longer-format presentations, and roundtable discussions. While you may request a preferred format during submission, flexibility may be required based on your expertise and program requirements.
