What is the format of the meeting?

posted on 03/09/2011


Over the course of 2-1/2 days, attendees hear 15-16 presentations on four topics (3-4 speakers each). All participants attend all sessions. Each presenter is given 25 minutes for his/her talk followed by 20 minutes of Q&A/discussion. There are also breakout sessions, poster sessions, longer breaks and mealtimes, tours, and evening events to facilitate exchange among the participants. An organizing committee of early career engineers selects the speakers and topics that will be covered in each session.
