Schedule and poster submission
We will have a welcome reception Friday evening, events throughout the day Saturday, and a dinner Saturday evening, with an open mic that will allow for remote participation (we hope to have dancing, which you will also be able to participate in remotely, but not in a synchronized way, due to the laws of physics). The celebration will finish at 1:30 Sunday at the end of lunch. Sunday morning events are TBA, and might be informal, and outside.

We would love to hear about your research, and this is a great chance for people of different eras to find out more about each other’s work, and for everyone to catch up.
