Breakout Sessions

Did you know that one of the highest rated features of AVS is our series of Breakout Sessions? These Breakouts are unique to AVS. Session organizers arrange expert speakers on relevant topics and then session attendees debate and discuss the issues. These discussions often include perspectives from around the world. Every Breakout Session generates outputs after the symposium which are posted on the AVS website. Breakout sessions will be held from 1:30 PM – 5:30 PM on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday during the symposium.

NOTE: All breakout sessions are closed to the media.
