Minneapolis on Demand Issue 1
Breaking Records in DC
Thank you for joining us in Washington, DC! We had a record-breaking 1,842 attendees, compared to 1,299 in Seattle. With over 200 sessions, 400 papers and 200 posters, there was a lot of quality research presented at the meeting.
Survey results confirmed that the quality of the presentations was above average. Thank you to all who contributed to the program – we hope you will consider presenting again next year in Minneapolis.
A special thank you goes out to the Selected Presentations Committee, Topic Leaders, and Reviewers. They dedicated hours of their time fielding a record number (1,228) of abstract submissions and helped create cohesive sessions. We’d also like to thank all of the Section leaders and members who helped put together the Track Sessions. Three out of the top five highest attended sessions were part of a track.
We appreciate all of your feedback and will use your comments in developing a strong program in Minneapolis.
