Technical Sessions

Technical Sessions have always been the heart of the IBC, where attendees can watch, listen and learn about the various topics scheduled for presentation. Conference attendees may choose from presentations in any of the concurrent technical sessions, as new presentations are scheduled every 30 minutes.
