Short Presentations and Hands-on Workshops

Proposals for presentations are closed at this time. 

In the Fall of 2019,  we solicited proposals for short presentations and hands-on workshops. When the coronavirus required us to switch to an online format, we were able to offer a number of presenters slots in a virtual panel followed by breakout session chats.  Stay tuned for more information on the 2020 virtual program.
