Participants will learn about the current technology ecosystem, as well as some of the processes that are desperately in need of more digitally ergonomic assistance.
The event will begin with a thirty-minute networking period, where refreshments will be provided to attendees. It will be followed by two, ten minute, presentations on the structure of human clinical trials and how they operate and are governed. Finally, the event will end with a thirty minute panel discussion featuring clinical trial managers, sponsors and coordinators, conversing with each other and attendees, about the challenges being faced in the industry, and how technology can be applied to remedy such challenges. After the panel discussion, time will be available for further networking and socializing.

Public Access has democratized and diversified TV and Radio programming in ways that leave us to consider what is possible if immersive media and emerging technology are included in Public Access facilities. Imagine a world where AI, VR, MR, AR, and 3D technology allow us to construct experiences as a community-driven public access utility. What are the implications or opportunities for our families, our neighborhoods, our schools, our public health, or our government when emerging technology is people powered media?
