What are “tracks” at the Digital Quality Summit?
Tracks are concurrent sessions. This year there are five tracks of interactive, hands-on working sessions where participants and the track lead and faculty develop new ways to solve quality measurement issues.
Am I required to choose a track before the Summit?
No! But we do ask for your track preference, so we can assign the meeting space accordingly.
You are welcome to switch between tracks during the Summit. To help you understand what tracks have done in previous working sessions, session summaries will be posted on the wall in each track room.
