There are a number of varied and exciting workshops that are planned for our annual meetings in Los Angeles (April 15-18, 2020).

Note that five of these are scheduled for Wednesday, April 15, so plan to be at the meetings early this year!

Some of the workshops require pre-registration. These are indicated by “Pre-registration Required” in bold. The registration portal will be open in February, 2020. Admission to the workshop cannot be guaranteed without preregistration.

Pre-registration for workshops closes on March 31 to allow the organizers sufficient time to contact you with workshop information.

The registration deadline for these workshops is March 31, 2020.

Note that the scheduled days/times are tentative and will be finalized when the meeting program is available in February. Wednesday workshops will not change to other days.
