This page provides an index to the session abstracts and presentation materials from the 2017 UNITE Conference held 30 October through 1 November in Atlanta, Georgia. A paid UNITE membership is required to access the materials for individual sessions.

Clicking a link in the "Session Title" column of the table below will open the abstract page for the session, which displays the speaker name(s), session day and time, type of audience and the text of the abstract. Most sessions will also have one or more links below the abstract text for downloading presentation materials -- slides, notes, and/or examples.

You can sort the table of sessions below on any of its columns by clicking the respective column header. Clicking the same header again will toggle between an ascending and descending sort on the column. You can also filter the rows of the table based on their content by entering words or phrases in the "Search" box.

Most presentation materials are in either PDF or Microsoft PowerPoint format. Most examples can be downloaded as zip archives. Note that the PDF or PPT files for some presentations can be quite large (10MB or more) and may take a significant amount of time to download to your browser.

The presentation materials have been made available to UNITE by the individual session speakers and are presented here as received by UNITE. UNITE holds no opinion on and disclaims any responsibility for the information and opinions expressed in these materials.
