Full Schedule

The full 2018 schedule will be available in December. You can still review the 2017 education sessions and presentations. Please note that the Sunday Preconference Workshops have an additional registration fee. Download a PDF version of the schedule here.

Concurrent Education sessions are highlighted by both session type and experience level to help you better plan your conference experience. Because sessions will not be recorded for the Summit Playback this year, make sure to choose sessions that best fir your Summit goals.

Experience Level

  • New TechComm Professionals and Students: Sessions meant for attendees new to the field and just learning about the topic.
  • Practitioner: Attendees are proficient with the topic, but will learn new and challenging material. 3 to 7+ years of experience.
  • Expert: The material is suitable for attendees who have advanced knowledge or job responsibilities (such as supervisor or manager). 10+ years of experience.

Session Types

  • Presentation
    Presentations provide attendees an overview of the title topic. A presentation can be a case study, research report, demonstration, or informational session about a topic of interest. Presentations usually include slides and/or handouts, and many presenters offer audience participation or a Q&A at the end.
  • Pre-conference Workshop (Half or Full Day)
    Pre-conference workshops are for people seeking a more in-depth learning experience on a specific topic prior to the Summit education sessions. There are half-day workshops conducted in the morning or afternoon (before or after a lunch break), and full-day workshops that are conducted in the morning and afternoon (with a break for lunch in between).
