Vendor Sessions

Vendor Sessions


ETS’19 is offering commercial vendors the opportunity to give technical presentations in a track parallel to the technical paper sessions. These presentations will be listed in the symposium program along with the technical sessions, and should be targeted to the ETS technical audience. The Vendor Sessions differ from other ETS presentations in that company names, logos, and product names may be mentioned explicitly. Typical content includes product descriptions, case studies, best practices, and user testimonials. Attendance at the sessions is open to all symposium attendees, and vendor representatives will be able to hand out literature at the session. Presentation opportunities of 30-minute duration are available.

Proposals for the Vendor Sessions should be technical or application focused, rather than overly sales-and-marketing focused. A submission to the ETS’19 vendor sessions can be an abstract, extended abstract or full paper (max. six pages); submission of a full paper is preferred, but not required. More details can in the special call for vendor sessions here 

Proposal selection is based on the technical content and relevance to ETS’19 audience and topics. Priority will be given to Corporate Supporters with higher priority for higher support grades. By means of submission, vendor session presenters agree to register for and participate in ETS’19, in case the submission is accepted.
