Enology Student Flash Talks

Some student authors have been assigned oral, 3.25-minute Flash Talks. These “flash” presentations will provide additional opportunities for interaction between conference attendees and student researchers.

Enology Flash Talks will take place on Wednesday, June 20, 3:25 pm – 5:25 pm, at the Monterey Conference Center.
