Each presentation will be 45 minutes. Although a question and answer period is not mandatory, allowing 10-15 minutes for discussion at the end of your presentation is highly encouraged.

Topics that demonstrate an innovative approach and/or focus on projects completed within the past two years are of particular interest.

To ensure the conference agenda maintains a high standard of quality, we ask Vendor/Consultant submitters to partner with a KUBRA client to tell their story. Presentations should be informative experiences, not sales pitches. Further, Vendor/Consultant participation is limited to approved and contracted iConnect Sponsors only.

KUBRA reserves the right to combine submitted abstract "topics" into panel discussions or workshops and edit titles, objectives, and summaries as needed.

We appreciate all submissions, but only successful presenters will be contacted due to limited slots.
