DDW Tracks

DDW Tracks

Fifteen tracks provide attendees with the ability to search all 2017 sessions by topic or theme across all societies as well as exhibitors. Look for these in all of our attendee resources as you plan for the meeting.

How You Can Use Tracks

  • In the DDW Mobile app, browse sessions by track. For example, some specific sessions that relate to basic science are grouped together. The tracks include sessions and posters for each topic. For DDW 2017, the exhibitor-selected product categories will be matched into specific tracks to make it even easier for an attendee to locate exhibitors within their area of interest. These selections will be available via the online Exhibit Hall floor plan and will be mapped to the DDW Online Planner and Mobile App.
  • In the Poster Hall, they are used for grouping posters. New Poster Locator signs will also help you navigate the hall by track.
  • In printed materials, tracks are color coded. Please refer to the graphic on the right to view each track's assigned color.
