What can you expect at the IEEE Infrastructure Conference? Highly relevant and future-looking technical keynotes and panels will anchor the event. The keynotes will stimulate the thinking and create the foundation for the day. 

Multiple breakouts sessions will allow participants to collaboratively work through issues. In these working sessions, code will be displayed and tools discussed while the participants walk through the challenges and iterates solutions. Think active learning-lab.
