There will be two formal poster-presentation sessions, one on Thursday afternoon and the other on Friday
afternoon. But posters will be available for viewing and informal discussion during the entire meeting, those of the
first session throughout Wednesday and Thursday, and those of the second session throughout Friday and Saturday.
The organizers expect to make adjustments to the scientific program, including selection of topics and speakers for
the late-breaking science session, after the receipt of abstracts in April.
