Final Program

The final program has been finalized and will be available in print at the meeting. The conference will begin with an Opening Ceremony at 17:30 on Wednesday 31 August, followed by a reception. There will be a Closing Ceremony on Saturday 3 September after the last session.

Navigating the Website 

The toolbar at the top of every page has links to three entries into the program:

Each of these entry points into the program takes you to a session page, which lists the session chair and discussant, if any, and the authors and titles of the papers or posters to be presented, with links to the online abstracts and extended abstracts (or completed papers) where available.

Uploading Papers

Final papers should have been uploaded to this website by 15 August, 2016. The upload feature of the website will remain enabled until two weeks after the conference.

If authors must withdraw their accepted papers or posters, they should inform the programme team at epc2016@princeton.edu.
