Disclaimer: This link contains a live recording of the IFSAC Public Meeting held in Washington, DC on February 24, 2015. In addition to holding the meeting in-person, the meeting was webcasted live to registered participants. As a part of the webcasting, closed captioning was provided in real-time, and given the difficulty of accurately capturing live discussions verbatim, viewers of the webcast will notice some errors in the transcription of the presentations, which is to be expected during a live event. IFSAC will work to ensure that the official written transcript of the public meeting (to be released at a later date) addresses any errors and accurately captures the meeting proceedings.
