Program preview:

DAY 1 – Workshops September 11th:
Build your case in 2 – 3 hours.

The 3IF conference starts with a series of parallel workshops on September 11th. Participants will have the opportunity to take a deep dive into specific topics to maximize the learning experience. In each workshop, participants will be presented with background materials, bringing them up to speed on concepts, fundamentals, objectives, experiences and state of the art. Following this, some cases will be elaborated during joint Q&A. Finally 2 cases will be worked upon in a structured approach in 4 smaller groups. Joint results will be debated in the group and moderated by the experts with some final advice. There will be 7 workshops ran in parallel. Please note that we’ll only allow 18 participants per workshop and that all reservations made are based on a first come, first serve basis. There will be 3 chances to participate in each of the workshops. Every 2 hour workshop will be followed by a 30 min break.
