The Poster Sessions will take place on Saturday April 14th from 4:30 - 7:00 pm in the Davenport Atrium that is located on the third floor of Lash Miller (80 St.George Street). Poster Abstracts may be submitted on-line via the appropriate link on this web-site (click here). The first of the two sessions will be from 4:30 - 5:45pm and the second is from 5:45 - 7:00pm. Velcro for your posters will be provided on Friday during registration. The poster boards are 4' wide and 6' long. Please put your posters up at your convenience between the times of 2:00 - 4:30 pm prior to the poster session.
