Consider a Workshop!!!

Workshops are 90-minute sessions designed to give presenters an opportunity to delve deeper into their particular topic of discussion. These sessions typically provide attendees an opportunity for hands-on experience with the topic.  A minimal stipend is paid to the presenter.

All presenters must register for ASCUE 2017 and pay standard registration fees for the conference. Presenters are encouraged to register early. Conference registration is open NOW!
