Event description
CESUN Virtual Staying in Touch Event, 12 February 2021, @ 10 AM Eastern Time

About this Event

The pandemic has changed so much of how we live our lives, including how we connect to our colleagues at conferences and professional events, like CESUN. While we hope we can have an in-person symposium in Fall 2021, the CESUN leadership has decided that a short "staying in touch" event will help hold us over. This will be a 3hr event with two keynotes and then an informal virtual networking and poster session.
