  • Presentation submissions must be complete at time of submission. Incomplete submissions will not be considered.
  • Should your presentation include a panel discussion, your submission must demonstrate that there is sufficient time for discussion and interaction with fellow panelists and an audience Q&A.

  • RoboBusiness reserves the right to recommend a different session format, combine sessions, and reschedule sessions based on availability and need. Sessions can not be changed once they are scheduled. In addition, at this time we can not accomodate requests for specific times or dates.
