Pre-Conference Institutes

On Tuesday, December 4, 2018, special daylong workshops (Pre-Conference Institutes) will be offered prior to the beginning of the conference. This allows you to spend an entire day concentrating in depth on a subject of interest to you. Unless otherwise noted, each Pre-Conference Institute begins at 9:00 am and concludes at 5:00 pm, with a break at noon for lunch (on your own).

Attendance at the Pre-Conference Institutes is optional and participation is limited based upon space availability. There is no additional charge for Pre-Conference Institutes, but participants must indicate their selection when they Register for the Conference. Attendance is on a first come, first served basis.
