Poster Exhibit Schedule

The posters should remain available for viewing for the full day of the exhibit. If needed, the Peer Review coordinators can ship the posters back to the presenter after the final poster session.

Peer Review Panel Discussions

Panel discussions are assigned by thrust areas, typically consisting of a session chair and approximately four oral presenters. If you are participating on a panel, a member of the Organizing Committee will contact you to schedule a conference call with your fellow panelists to review content, flow, and timing of the session. If you are a conference chair or moderator, the Event Coordinators will schedule a call with you to discuss your role.

Panelists: Upload or e-mail your oral presentation in the form of a PowerPoint slide deck (.PPT) to by September 20, 2018.
