Concurrent Sessions

After careful consideration and much discussion, ResCon 2020 will be moving its dates from its original April 2020 time frame.

We plan to provide the same educational offerings when we hold ResCon at its new time.

These daily interactive sessions range in length from 45 to 60 minutes and feature the brightest minds and top-level professionals. Engage with the session leaders in an intimate setting to create a dynamic, collaborative learning experience. Topics will be distributed across five educational tracks. All listed topics are tentative and subject to change.


Topic areas will include (sorted by Track): 

Resilient Technologies*:


Resilient Places*:


Resilient People*:  


Resilient Organizations*:


Other Topics*:
