Two New Educational Session Tracks

Hear about the
flow of information

Information track

Innovations in Information

Payments is much more than the ability to exchange funds. In fact, the messaging that flows with payments, allowing receiving parties to reconcile data and use the information to better enable business practices, is what truly makes electronic commerce a thriving business. Sessions in this track focus on information flow and exchange of messages with payments, process improvements, and enhanced capabilities by using information with payments.

Three New Educational Formats

Propose your questions



These sessions allow the attendee to submit questions to speakers — either in advance or in person — to ensure the speaker addresses the topic in a way that answers top-of-mind questions. Attendees will use the conference mobile app to answer polling questions in advance of the session so that speakers may demonstrate how well they know the audience. Polls will also be used during the session to allow speakers to "quiz" the attendees about the topic of the session.

Help Facilitate Discussion



Similar to Quizbowl sessions, the use of audience-supplied questions helps facilitate discussion during the session. Audience members will be invited to drop a question in a bowl on stage and, following the brief presentation, speakers will draw questions from the bowl to answer and engage in conversation with co-presenters and audience members to explore the answers and how the conversation relates to the topic.

Participate on your feet


Exercised Learning

This highly interactive format essentially involves voting with your feet. Using a session room set in table rounds presenters will introduce the over-arching topic of discussion with a short presentation including questions that will be answered during the session. During the presentation two or three subtopics will be introduced and audience members will be asked to proceed to the section of the room pertaining to the subtopic of most interest to them.
