Workshops differ from symposia in that they are technique-oriented. Workshops cover emerging methods presented by widely acknowledged developers and experts who help the participants gain a working knowledge of new technologies.  Workshops are held on Sunday and Tuesday nights only, 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM.
