SESSION TYPES, TIMES AND LOGISTICS

CONCURRENT SESSIONS All concurrent sessions will occur Friday and Saturday in the Aspen, Birch, Cedar, Pine, Maple, Willow, Black Bear, and Lynx Rooms on the Main Level of the Hotel. Each session is forty minutes in length which will include questions and comments.

POSTER SESSION Although posters will be available for viewing throughout the Symposium, the formal poster session will begin Friday at 5:20 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. in the Castle / Assiniboine Rooms. Poster presenters will be available to discuss their work.

CRACKER BARREL PRESENTATIONS New to the Symposium in 2018, the Cracker Barrel is a short session repeated three times in 90 minutes. The presenter usually provides a brief introduction to the topic, and participants are invited to comment and ask questions. After 25 minutes, when the bell rings, participants will move on to another table, and the presenter will repeat the presentation to a new group. Three groups will pass by each table in a 90 minute period. Cracker Barrel presentations will take place Friday at 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. in the Black Bear and Lynx Rooms.

TECHNICAL DETAILS Each concurrent session room is equipped with a screen, projector, laptop pc, and appropriate cabling (Mac users must provide their own computers and cables). There is limited technical support available. For assistance, please speak to someone at the Symposium Registration Desk.
