Conference Schedule

Our tentative conference schedule allows for two parallel tracks of technical sessions on Monday, October 24 through Thursday, October 28. We will post more information regarding the conference schedule here as we develop it. The final schedule will depend on the number and types of abstracts submitted and other conference opportunities we want to provide (e.g., panel discussions, workshops, etc.).

If you have ideas for workshops or meetings associated with the conference, please contact Tom Douglas to see how we can help support you!
