Program

Program - This is the most up-to-date version of the 2017 KFLC program. Cancellations will be updated as we receive them.

There is also a PDF version available for download.

Whenever a participant has neither confirmed nor denied their attendance, or is a no-show, the title of the panel is highlighted in red; however, no panel will change time slots nor space. If a presenter is a no-show, the moderator will decide how to address the vacancy.

Also, a few panels are still seeking moderators. The PDF will be updated with their info as the conference date approaches. If you are in one of those panels and would like to moderate, please express this to Jacob Neely at kflc@uky.edu.
