Registration for the field trip and social events closed August 15.
For those presenting talks: Talks must be no more than 15 minutes – we have a very full schedule, and we definitely want to have time for coffee, lunch, and viewing posters! In order to have time for questions at the end of your presentation, you might want to aim for your talk to take 12-13 minutes. The presentation room is equipped with a computer with Powerpoint, and a data projector. If you want to bring your own laptop or tablet, please make sure you have the necessary power cables and adapters.
For those presenting a poster: The poster boards are 4×5 feet and use tacks. The posters will be available for viewing on both days of the conference and can be set up as early as 8:30 am on Friday, August 30. Posters should be taken down before the barbecue on Saturday, August 31.
