Virtual Sessions

LOEX 2015 Encore: live virtual "encore" sessions of a small number of breakouts from LOEX 2015 in Denver.

Each session will be one hour, will be (very likely) held in GoToMeeting or WebEx, and will allow for live interaction between presenters and attendees. These virtual sessions will utilize the material presenters have prepared for the LOEX 2015 conference and enable them to reach a wider audience of people, acting as a nice supplement to the conference.


Registration for LOEX 2015 Encore is now closed.

***Update*** Archived recordings of these sessions are now available now to LOEX members.
