We are accepting abstracts for the technical program now. Presentations within the technical program are to be focused on educational aspects of UAS technology and implementation (minimizing product marketing). The program this year will expand the focus on applications of UAS technology as well as innovations in UAS hardware and software. Sign up on the Pre-Registration Link and indicate your interest in presenting, exhibiting, sponsoring, or providing a workshop. http://uasreno.org.
