WCBP 2018: Workshop Information

 Workshop Session Formats for WCBP 2017
Over the past twenty years, we've learned that different subject matter can be best shared through different Workshop formats.
This yea WCBP will feature three different styles of Workshops to enhance discussion of key topics of interest. 
Discussion at Workshops, Roundtables, and during formal and informal networking times is critical to the success of our meeting. With the introduction of the new Workshop Formats, we hope that you will get even more from WCBP 2017.
 The Standard Format 

This is the Workshop you usually think of as being associated with WCBP. Industry and Regulatory Agency co-chairs focus on generating discussion over the entire period of the session. As with all Workshop Formats, audience participation is critical to its success.

The Speed Dating Format 

This isn’t your grandmother’s Workshop! We’ve kicked it up a notch by facilitating 4 simultaneous Roundtable sessions on four related Workshop issues. Every attendee has the opportunity to add their thoughts to each topic in a smaller, collegial setting. The facilitators then work hard (and fast) to summarize all the points and report out to the Workshop attendees - all in real time.

  The “Plen-shop” Format

Sometimes, a presentation of background material before discussion begins is a good thing. The Plen-shop format allows for that. In these sessions, one or more short presentations will be followed by intensive discussion. It’s not a plenary session, it’s not a workshop - it’s a Plen-shop!

 "Hot Topic" Workshop
In addition to the pre-determined Workshop topics, one Standard Workshop topic will be chosen on-site by WCBP 2017 attendees. We realized that sometimes we may miss an important breaking topic because of how far in advance we work to ensure a high-quality conference. The Hot Topic Workshop allows attendees to suggest and vote for a topic of their choice and we will provide skilled facilitators, whatever the topic!
