The agenda will be finalized the week prior the meeting. (It must be created customized to the titles of the posters/presentations and this can only be done when they are all received).


In line with previous years’ formats, all participants will be asked to give a 5-minute talk highlighting their research and most important findings. The title submitted is assumed to be the same as the poster title.

The poster session and cocktail hour will take place Thursday evening, April 27th from 6:00pm to 7:30pm. All students and post-docs attending are expected to submit a poster; the template can be found under Quick Links, and each individual is responsible for printing and bringing their own poster.
