We have planned a number of new activities for our annual
meeting in Austin (April 11 – 14, 2018). Because of space limitations some of
these workshops/events require pre-registration. Also note when you
pre-register that some of these events unfortunately have had to be scheduled
in conflict with each other.
To register, click on the workshop/event title. Admission to the
event cannot be guaranteed without preregistration.
Pre-registration closes on April 1 to allow the
organizers sufficient time to contact you with workshop information.
