Poster Session

The conference begins with scientific poster presentations during the opening reception on Sunday evening. From 5:30−7:00 p.m. you will have an opportunity to discuss new research findings with poster presenters in the relaxed atmosphere of the Great River Ballroom at the InterContinental Saint Paul Riverfront Hotel. Join your colleagues for the opening reception, and enjoy hors d’oeuvres and beverages. Posters will move to the Saint Paul RiverCentre for viewing at the main conference on Monday.

Selected abstracts will also be selected for oral presentations on Sunday afternoon at the Research Highlights session, 3:00−5:00 p.m. at the Saint Paul RiverCentre.
