The response to our Call for Papers exceeded our most optimistic expectations. We thank all the authors and co-authors who contributed abstracts, and appreciate the employers, data owners, and partners that approved those abstracts for presentation. Consequently, we have scheduled two days of concurrent oral sessions.On April 19, we emailed all authors of accepted Oral and/or Poster Presentations acknowledgement of the acceptance of their submission. This included our Draft Technical Program as an attachment to the accepted Oral presenters, and assignment to the various poster sessions to Poster presenters. Because these emails had so many recipients, some may have been blocked by recipient’s spam filter. Therefore, we kindly request you check your spam folder first. If it was blocked for whatever reason, as soon as possible email: paul.post@boem.gov.

Our current draft Program & Schedule of Events, Oral Presentations & Schedule, and Poster Presentations List are all available on the Program page (see above). Like all other conferences, there will probably be minor adjustments to the program over the period up to the event. All authors will be advised of the final program that will also be posted on the website.
