Speaker profile

All confirmed speakers must be registered users in the X-CD system, and ensure their speaker profiles are submitted and updated by no later than 8 July 2016. If you need to make updates to your profile after this date, contact the conference manager via email.

Please ensure that all your details are correct, as this is how they will appear on the website, in the program, on the conference app and in all related conference collateral and promotional materials.

The conference organisers may edit your bio according to AIEC style guidelines.
