Track Description
Panels afford the opportunity to discuss timely topics that are important, provocative, and contested. A good panel engages the audience and invited experts in a discussion that stimulates interaction and significantly advances attendees’ understanding of a complex topic. Panel topics are varied, but generally pertain to contemporary issues that demand focused research attention, new research challenges, or changes to the status quo of the discipline.
Track Chairs
