We anticipate that the meeting will follow the format of previous years. As usual for NWG, we have no requirements for advance abstracts. However, due to the anticipated large number of participants, we do ask that you let us know in advance
The ongoing schedule is usually then a work in progress.
The time available for each speaker will depend on the number who want to speak. However, due to the anticipated large number of participants, we ask that you be prepared to give your presentation in about 15 minutes maximum including discussion. If we have a very large number of speakers, we may need to go beyond 5 PM, or shorten the time slots.
We plan to have projection facilities for PowerPoint-type presentations. If you will want any additional equipment, please let us know what you would like as soon as possible.We can also accommodate posters if you would like to bring one. Please indicate that you would like to do so when you email
to let us know that you are coming.
