About the program

All lead authors are invited to be on-call for text-based and video chat during nominal time slots associated with their abstracts.  Invited, award, and minisymposium talks will be live streamed at the indicated times, then available on-demand for the remainder of the meeting.

The detailed APS epitome for the meeting is available here.
