Final Program is Now Available Online

The 2014 Annual Meeting Program has been finalized and will be available in print at the meeting.

The program is also available online in two versions: (1) the main website, which is best viewed on a desktop, laptop, or tablet, and (2) a mobile version that is optimized for smart phones. To access the mobile website tap the phone icon on the right or visit

The electronic versions of the program include the room assigments for each session, with links to the hotel floor maps.

Navigating the Website

The toolbar at the top of every page has links to three entries into the program:

Each of these entry points into the program takes you to a session page, which lists the session chair and discussant, if any, and the authors and titles of the papers or posters to be presented, with links to the online abstracts and extended abstracts (or completed papers) where available.
