    The workshops Developing a Research Question and Career Pathways Inside and Outside Academia are specifically student oriented.

Social Events

  • Will be held on October 19 and 20, 2014. These include the Opening Reception, and the Western Jamboree Dinner.

Breakout Sessions

  • Will be held as part of the symposium’s scientific program on October 20, 21, and 22. Since there are a limited number of concurrent sessions in which special sessions can be scheduled, the Scientific Committee reserves the right to select only the most appropriate, to combine proposed sessions with similar themes, and to include additional submitted abstracts that are on proposed session themes.
