Podium Presentations

Our Program Committees and Session Chairs have been in discussions with various universities, government organizations, community groups and industry members about creating sessions that can be the most beneficial to our attendees. Below is the preliminary list of ASIC Speakers that will be sharing their experiences, research and knowledge with you. We will be continuing to recruit people and organizations to offer podium presentations as well as poster presentations at the conference.
