Meet face-to-face with the PEQG research community at TAGC 2020! The meeting’s unique format offers multiple opportunities for you to share your work, learn about the latest research and tools, build community, and recruit newcomers to the field. Catch up with colleagues at the opening night PEQG mixer and at designated community meeting spots throughout the meeting. We’ll make it easy to spot your community’s people and posters via signage and badges.
What’s the hashtag?
