How to register: No registration is needed! If you are attending any session that features a crossword puzzle, simply navigate to that interactive puzzle within the table below. The link will be active during the presentation. Make sure to plan ahead to attend a presentation below!
How to play: Attend the presentation, complete the puzzle, and take a screenshot of the puzzle solution and submit the screenshot to firstname.lastname@example.org.

One winner will be selected for each puzzle. The first entry that completely solves a puzzle and sends a screenshot of the puzzle solution by submitting to email@example.com will qualify your entry into that contest (one wrong or missing answer allowed). Links will be available in the table below prior to the first day of the summit. Presentations were selected to represent a range of presentations across the duration of the conference.
