||Thank you for your interest in the "heart" of LLC 12 in San Francisco - the programming.
Whether you are preparing a proposal for a presentation or simply are looking for more information on what is being offered, below you will find a listing of each of the “tracks” in which presentations will be grouped.
In some cases, the title of the track makes the subject selfevident. In other cases, it may require more explanation. In all cases, except one, we have provided titles of previous LLC presentations that have been grouped under that track.
As the time for the conference draws closer, we will be listing individual presentations and presenters, so check back for updates after the period for presentation submission has closed.
We look forward to an exciting and rewarding conference.
