Conference Program .pdf

Attendees arrive Sunday night Oct. 20 and informal groups will assemble in the hotel restaurants and bars. For attendees arriving earlier, there are many interesting sights in the Rochester area. The conference attendees will have a chance to tour the Laboratory for Laser Energetics on Monday at 5 pm when the sessions close. The Conference reception will be held on Monday night at 7 pm in the Munnerlyn Atrium of the Robert B. Goergen Building for Biomedical Engineering and Optics. Entertainment will be provided by several student groups.
