|New in 2013: Wednesday sessions, free afternoons|
In response to comments from our 2011 member survey, we are adapting the 2013 schedule in an effort to increase meeting attendees’ opportunities for informal engagement.
will schedule no sessions in our customary late-afternoon time slot
(3:45-5:45 pm) on Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday. This time will instead
be available to attendees for informal conversations and networking.
open up this time slot and still include the customary number of
sessions in the meeting program, we will begin the meeting program with
concurrent sessions on Wednesday morning. The meeting’s opening ceremony
will still be held on Wednesday evening. Tours
and professional development workshops will be held throughout the
meeting, rather than before the meeting as in years past.
