Afternoon Breakout Sessions

The afternoon breakout sessions are concurrent content tracks that break out talks and panels by market/business and science & technology.  Attendees will be able to choose which sessions to attend and can switch between tracks during the breaks between each session. Video of each track will be available for attendees so they can see content from both tracks after the Summit.
