Program and Presenter Information

The workshop will consist of plenary sessions and a poster session. For details, view the program and abstracts. Authors will not receive notification letters, so they should check the author index to see where their presentation has been scheduled.

Oral Presentations —
A PC laptop, LCD projector, and speaker remote will be available for presentations during the oral sessions. In order to facilitate a smooth transition between speakers, all presentations MUST be preloaded and tested in advance. To aid the preloading process, create a folder on your flash drive/CD called “EarlyMars2017” and place your PowerPoint presentation in that folder. Please include your last name in the naming of your presentation file. A student volunteer will be available each morning to load presentations from 8:00 to 8:30 a.m. and each afternoon from 1:00 to 1:30 p.m. to assist in loading your talk.
