The final 2016 schedule will be posted one week before the retreat
Please note that the first session will begin at 1:00pm on Friday September 23rd in Merrill Hall. A map of the Asilomar conference grounds is provided below to help you find your way.
Please plan to arrive before 1:00 pm and proceed to Merrill Hall! Check-in does not begin until after 4pm, and you will need to check in before attending dinner. The drive to Asilomar takes about 2.5 - 3 hours without a lunch break, so we strongly recommend that attendees do not try to squeeze in an experiment on Friday morning! It was great to see so many people for the first session last year -- we hope to repeat that this year.
Poster presentations will take place after the sessions on Friday evening in Merrill Hall. With extra space to mingle and plenty of refreshments, we are looking forward to another lively session this year. Please read the instructions for the new poster-judging format this year under the “presenter info” tab. If you did not register for a poster when you signed up, it's not too late! Just modify your registration details on the website within "My account," under the "science" tab.
Guest speaker Dr. Ruslan Medzhitov anchors the Saturday evening session with his talk. This will be followed by a party on the beach.
