Program at a Glance

The program will be spread over three days. Please note that the 1st is a travel day. There will be an informal welcome reception at a public place in the evening. To get to the welcome reception and the conference venue, see the instructions on the "Attending" page.

The 4th will be a FULL day. We hope that attendees will use the weekend to travel.
