You can indicate one or more conference strands when you submit your presentation. Your presentation does not have to fit into the conference strands to be considered--the strands exist for the convenience of those interested in finding particular types of sessions.

In quotes after the strand name is the strand "tag," which also allows you to click through to the presentation submissions that have used that tag.

Underneath the strands are sub-topics ideas, which are very much a work in progress. If you have an idea for a topic strand that we missed, or feel that identifying a sub-topic will help, you can comment at the bottom of this page.
