Virtual Retreat, September 10 and 11, 2020

Virtual Poster Session Registration and Requirements.

 Trainees and faculty are invited to present posters about your work!  The format will be an online representation of your poster in a dedicated video channel that people can view as a pdf. (Sadly it will be BYOC, bring your own cake). For everyone perusing posters, there’ll be an index of poster titles & authors, and you will be able to pop in & out of posters just like at the conference center in Monterey.
