Thank you to everyone who attended, presented, and sponsored this year's conference.  It would not have been a success without all of you.  In addition, congratulations to the AGIC Conference Committee for all of their work to make this event happen.  There was a lot of new territory to make this conference virtual and the committee succeeded well.

Conference recordings and proceedings will be available in the next few weeks.  Until then, if you attended the conference, keep an eye on your email for a post-conference survey and please complete it.  Your feedback is what will make next year's conference even better.
