You may get breakfast and set your poster up beginning at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday April 14. The poster session officially begins at 8:00 a.m.
If you don’t get a chance to look at a particular poster, the plenary discussion will help you pick up what you missed. And, learning happens more when we talk to each other about what we’re learning.
At about 9:15 or so, a moderator will call everyone together and ask for thoughts on the significant ideas that came out of the posters. So, please get to the poster session early enough to see posters before then!
