The meeting will begin with parallel sessions on Thursday morning and end with a banquet on Saturday night. 

Along with plenary, and Interest Group sessions, the conference includes a Thursday evening reception, working-lunch meetings, a Society business meeting, a women’s breakfast, a students’ luncheon, and a banquet.
