Program and Abstracts Available 

Program and Abstracts - June 10, 2018

There will be a laptop (PC only) at the registration desk daily (June 19-22) for you to upload your presentation. To avoid technical delays, the use of personal laptops will not be permitted for presentations. The latest version of Powerpoint will be used for presentations, or Adobe if you prefer PDF. Please load your presentation at least a day before your talk. You can also email ( your presentation to us prior to the start of the conference and we will put it on the appropriate computer. 

Be sure to preview your presentation prior to your talk in the room you'll be presenting in between sessions. 

Please label your presentation file as follows: 

Day_Date_Presentation Time_First Author Last Name (example: Wed_20_0345_Cooke).

Posters can be displayed starting at 8:00AM June 20th and must be up by 1:30PM that day. We will provide binder clips to attach posters to poster boards. All posters have been assigned numbers, so be sure to place your poster in the assigned space. Please remove posters at the end of the poster session.

Field trip and workshop announcements have already gone out. If you registered for one of these activities and did not get an email yet regarding your activity leaders, contact us at
