Allows remote users to stream opening session and nine education sessions live from upcoming annual meeting and exposition in Minneapolis.
COMMON has unveiled a new product, COMMON LIVETRACK, to further provide more virtual education options to the Power Systems community. This new product will allow those who are not able to attend the upcoming COMMON Annual Meeting and Exposition in Minneapolis to still be a part of the largest gathering of the Power Systems user community. Anyone in the world will be able to stream the opening session, which officially kicks off the annual meeting, live to their computer, and hear and see what’s new and exciting in COMMON and IBM.
In addition to the free live streaming of opening session, LIVETRACK will also offer a cost-effective option to stream nine education sessions directly from the COMMON Annual Meeting. These nine sessions, delivered over three days, offer a wide variety of topics, all delivered by some of the most recognized experts in the industry. A complete list of sessions included in the LIVETRACK education offering can be found at http://www.common.org/livetrack.
“LIVETRACK is a great way to educate the community about what’s new and exciting in the Power Systems world by streaming the Opening Session from the Annual Meeting to everyone at no charge,” said Pete Massiello, COMMON President. “It allows those that could not attend to still be a part of the largest gathering of the Power Systems user community and hear from COMMON and IBM.”
“The LIVETRACK educational sessions allow those who can’t come to the conference to still reap the benefits of leading education from some of the most recognized Power Systems experts in the world. What a great way to receive the value of COMMON at your desk with little or no travel expense that you can include as part of your daily schedule.”
