Panelists will present an overview of their specific project or system and summarize their own lessons from the field. After each panel presentation there will be a brief question and answer session. In the afternoon, participants will have the opportunity to organize and join break out sessions to enable more detailed collaboration and discussion in the areas they are most interested in.

The day's wrap up will include key learning from each break out group, and a more general question and answer session.

The day has been designed to allow discussion, connecting, sharing - and stretch time!
