Student Flash Talks

Some student authors have been assigned oral, 3.5-minute Flash Talks. These “flash” presentations will provide additional opportunities for interaction between conference attendees and student researchers.

Flash Talks will take place on Wednesday, June 29, 4:45 pm – 6:15 pm, at the Monterey Marriott.
