Past Instructors

SMArts would not be the conference it is today if it were not for all the past instructors who have shared their expertise and helped to shape and guide this conference over the past 22 years. Though these instructors below are not currently leading a session, and some may have moved onto greener pastures, we would like to honour their participation and support of SMArts.
