Travel Awards for trainees will be available.
Speakers are confirmed and listed.
We are currently planning to hold an inperson meeting, but realize that many attendees may still have restricted travel, therefore, we are looking to include virtual elements as well. Either setting (virtual or in-person) will offer great opportunities for attendees and presenters.
