Breakout Sessions

Breakout sessions are your opportunity to focus on the topics you want with others who probably have the same questions. Each breakout session has a leader, but they aren’t presenters, rather hosts to guide and facilitate the conversation you need and provide expert guidance along the way.

WCS2014 will have three blocks of breakout sessions. There’s no need to sign up ahead of time, just head to the session you want when the time comes. Here is our list of sessions and leaders so you can get excited!
