Pre-registration is now closed, but please come. We expect to accommodate everybody who comes, but in the unlikely event that too many people come, priority will be given to graduate students, faculty, and researchers who registered earliest.

Poster session

There will be a poster session during lunch. To submit, please email a brief abstract describing the project to by May 5th, 2012.
