Conference Program

This year’s highly selective program will consist of a daily plenary session , late breaking results, and invited talks.

The newest cutting-edge research developments will be highlighted as Late Breaking Results (5-minute presentation + poster). These results will be introduced with a 5-minute (5-viewgraph) oral presentation in the morning. These results will then be further exhibited and discussed in detail during each of the coffee breaks and over lunch as posters in the grand hall overlooking Lake Michigan.

Three Best Paper Awards >will be given each day to the highest voted Late Breaking Results. All participants will be given a ballot to vote for the day's best papers. The voting will close each day at 2:00 PM, and the awards will be posted in the poster hall. In the awards session, the winners will then be given a prize as well as an additional 10 minutes to present more details of their results.
