Opportunities to Participate

 

Opportunities to Participate

Give a Flash Talk
Flash talks will be scheduled throughout the week. They are 5-minute, one-slide presentations of your work, a research question you want input on, or something else of interest you would like to ask or share with the group. Prizes awarded to the top talks.

Future Technology Discussion
The event will include a discussion titled “Future Technology Needs”, where we want to hear your ideas of what technology is missing in the current research environment that would help advance your work. This could be techniques, protocols, instrumentation capability, etc. These can be big or small ideas, realistic or just a dream.

Join World-Leading Experts for Q&A
Sign up for a session where you bring your questions and get help from the experts. Sessions are limited to 15 people and we request you submit a question in advance so we can come prepared for the discussion.

Tweet Your Thoughts and Ideas
Join in via twitter during the sessions.
