Research presentations required

This year, each of CMC’s 36 research projects is being asked to send a representative to give the CMC community an update on the status of their research. Because time is short, talks limited to 5 slides in 5 minutes. These 5-in-5 talks can be given by project investigators or HQP. Four plenary sessions have been set aside for these presentations.

Submission deadline is Friday, April 27. For details see the attached PDF.
