Program-at-a-Glance

Program Overview

The conference will begin Wednesday, April 3rd with welcome statements provided by conference chair- Dr. Jeff Weiss and co-chair- Dr. Gerard Ateshian. Informative and inspiring Plenary Talks from world-renowned experts will be given following breakfast on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. Simultaneous sessions will immediately follow the Plenary Talks. Special Sessions and Workshops will also be highlights of the conference. Each Session will feature an extended presentation provided by an Invited Speaker, followed be podium presentations pertinent to that session.

As organizers, we want to ensure that attendees have plenty of opportunities to discuss their research with experts from around the world. We also want to emphasize that poster presenters will have a high-visibility- a dedicated session for posters (with lunch) will occur on Friday. A welcome reception and banquet dinner will open and close the conference, respectively. Awards for general podium and poster presentations and awards specifically for students will be presented at the banquet dinner.

We hope that attendees will have time to explore Salt Lake City and its beautiful surroundings. The Symposium schedule provides free time on Thursday from morning until mid-afternoon.  Attendees may wish to enjoy a day of skiing at one of several ski resorts located within 45 minutes from the Symposium hotel.
