We anticipate holding 9 half-day sessions for the 5-day Symposium. Each half-day session will consist of two ~ 90 min sessions, with typically 2 invited talks (30 min) and 2 contributed talks (18 min) per session.  (The time estimates include discussion time for each talk).

The Symposium will also include poster viewing and presentation sessions. The poster presentations will be for 1 min per poster (1 slide).
