Work-in-Progress — Detailed Instructions

Work-in-progress (WiP) presentations may include a project at any stage of completion from topic selection to data interpretation. WiP will be highly interactive sessions led by experienced researchers. WIP sessions have three purposes — (1) to share up-to-the-minute work, (2) provide opportunities for researchers to ask for feedback on their work, and (3) for participants to develop ideas for future proposals and collaborations.
