CONFERENCE WORKSHOPS:
Conference 47 in Charlotte, NC will offer 60 + Workshops. Workshops are presented Wednesday and Thursday.

Each workshop will be one hour. This includes an introduction from a Planning Committee Member, 40-45 minutes for presentation of workshop content, and 10-15 minutes for questions and answers at the end of your session.

Workshops must include a utility presenter. Vendors are welcome to submit an abstract as a co-presenter with a utility. Workshops will refrain from using the presentation as an advertisement for a specific product or service, but offer the “real life” utility benefit to speak for itself. We ask that you be available for any technical information that is required to tell the “story”.

CS Week reserves the right to combine submitted abstract "topics" into panel discussions and tweak titles, objectives and summaries as needed.

When selected, each presenter will sign speaker permission, complete an outline of the proposed session, then submit their presentation in PowerPoint format to be reviewed and critiqued by a Planning Committee member and will be required to finalize the presentation in February/March 2023. CS Week reserves the right to cancel any workshop that has not submitted the final draft by March.

Assist us in providing a quality educational experience for Conference participants by adhering to our philosophy that all presentations be non-commercial. Vendor/Consultant submitters are required to partner with a utility client to tell their story (presentation should not be a sales pitch).

*CS Week has added "Disruptors" a new track to the CX Puzzle! Replacing our retired Analytics track, Disruptors presents utility responses/programs that address internal and external business process disruptors like ESG, climate action, carbon neutrality, social justice, supply chain and the evolving workforce.
