ISC2024 will be held in Memphis, TN from April 25-28, 2024 with the Sheraton Memphis Downtown serving as our host hotel and most activities, workshops, our vendor showcase, and meals being available within the newly renovated Renasant Convention Center, adjacent to the hotel. Our previous ISC2022 Atlanta event was held from April 28 – May 1, 2022, at the Grand Hyatt – Buckhead in Atlanta and was a great success, but ISC2024 Memphis will be bigger – both attendance as well as space wise, better – in every way, and a lot more fun – with an extra day and a wonderful Parade down historic Beale St. More detailed information on the ISC2024 Memphis event schedule and a registration website will be available shortly.
Workshop Presenters: We are providing potentially-interested workshop session presenters with this information and we hope you participate in this exciting ISC2024. Please complete and submit th initial session information recap form you will find below. You will receive an acknowledgement and follow-up from our ISC2024 Presenter Committee.
The event will have a total of 45 sessions with each time slot of 45 minutes having three concurrent workshops. We know some workshops may require two sessions, the second of which will immediately follow the first, after a short 15-minute break. Also, we realize that many sessions are so unique that our attendees won’t want to miss yours, but they will have tough choices to make when selecting their preferred 15 workshops. To accommodate some of these, you may be asked to present your session twice so that select sessions can be offered a second time, perhaps later the same day, or on a following day.
We heard the good and the bad on all aspects of the last ISC, including several workshop session problems and this is how we have those issues strategized for the 2024 event. First, all three workshop rooms are adequately sized for the planned attendance (at least 1/3 more) and ADA-accessible seating and aisle setups have been created so as to leave sufficient space to accommodate scooters, walkers, and front presentation area. All three session rooms are on the same floor, all within sight of each other, but they have no contiguous walls (no air walls) which could be distracting if another presenter was boisterous. Each session, when followed by another session timeslot, has a longer 15-minute break for use of nearby facilities and drinking fountains.
Again, please complete and submit the initial session information recap form which follows below. Requests may close on or before May 15, 2023.
