In addition to the technical paper sessions, HYDROVISION International features panel presentation sessions divided into eight broad categories:
These sessions do not involve a formal presentation but rather consist of an interactive panel discussion format, where speakers address various aspects of a specific topic primarily by fielding questions from the audience.
If you are interested in being considered as a speaker in one of these sessions at HYDROVISION International 2020, please select one or two topic areas from the above list that best fit your expertise and submit them with your name, title, company affiliation, mailing address, phone number, email and a short biography to firstname.lastname@example.org by Sept. 27, 2019. This could be your opportunity to provide expertise and interact with the audience in lively discussion on some hot topics.
Requirements for speakers participating in a panel discussion include confirming participation and registering as a speaker for HYDROVISION International 2020. PowerPoint presentations are not required but are highly recommended.
If there is interest from the session moderators in recruiting you as a panelist, you will be contacted.
