Industry Workshops

Apply to Host an Industry Workshop

Industry Workshops provide an opportunity for MSACL conference attendees to learn more about specific applications or products of interest as presented by sponsoring vendors.

Sponsoring vendors may request that attendees pre-register, but it is NOT REQUIRED (if there are issues regarding this on-site please contact any MSACL employee). Vendors may, however, provide priority seating to pre-registered workshop attendees if there are space limitation issues.

A listing of Industry Workshops will appear below as they are booked.
