NEW! Catch and Release Presentations: Do you have an experience to share, a new idea, a new way to use software, or a skill that you think others might benefit knowing? These presentations can be found in two alcoves outside the breakout rooms.  Each person can have up to 15 minutes to present their idea or skill. Sign up onsite for any time during the conference (just walk by and claim a slot), spread the word, and share your information. Time is monitored so each person gets their 15 minutes of fame, and talks can be continued elsewhere in the hall.
