This year we are introducing an expanded program featuring three oral presentations and four poster presentations. All poster presentations will be held in the hotel lounge from 5:15 pm to 6:00 pm. Oral presentations will take place in the meeting room promptly at 7:00 pm following our dinner service. The final judging and awards ceremony will follow shortly thereafter.
