In addition to the 3 Presentation Rooms, we will operate a Social Room throughout the day where participants can meet and chat with others, or continue discussions started during the presentations.

Please note that the Social Room will not be available during the Plenary or TIU Virtual Tour slots, or the Plenary Q & A.
