Ad Hoc Sessions During the Conference

Time is available from 12:30–1:45 p.m. on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday for ad hoc sessions. The sessions must end at 1:45 p.m. so that the room can be prepared for the concurrent sessions.

Those wishing to convene an ad-hoc session should contact mahoney@genetics-gsa.org with the title and date they would like to hold the session, and the number of people expected by November 30, 2023. The session information will be sent to the scientific organizers for final approval before being added to the schedule. Ad hoc organizers will be responsible for coordinating all aspects of the session, including speaker presentations. The ad hoc session information must be received by January 4, 2024 to be included in the program book.

If you would like to hold a pre-meeting workshop, please contact mahoney@genetics-gsa.org by October 5, 2023. A registration fee will be charged for the pre-meeting workshops.
