The US HUPO 2017 conference program will begin 6:00 pm, Sunday, March 19 and conclude at 12:00 pm, Wednesday, March 22, 2017. All sessions, short courses, workshops and posters will be at the US Grant Hotel in downtown San Diego.
Seventy-Four Talks Selected from Submitted Abstracts
The program features 74 talk slots to be selected from submitted abstracts. 28 slots within the parallel sessions, 36 slots for 'lightning talks' (or poster highlight talks) split over two days, and 10 slots for 'tips & tricks' talks (five-minute talks also highlighting posters but focused on technology).
Fourteen Parallel Sessions with Invited Speakers
The parallel sessions are the backbone of the conference Monday-Wednesday. Each parallel session will feature two invited speakers plus two talks selected from submitted abstracts. Please find below a listing of confirmed invited speakers and preliminary titles for the parallel sessions.
