Technical Program Sessions

With over 1,160 presentations, this is the largest Technical Program we've ever held.

With more than 1,600 abstracts received for review, this year's Technical Program includes 158 diverse sessions. The Technical Program will begin on Monday at 1:50 p.m., following the SEG Opening Session and Presidential Address. It will include nine Special Sessions and one Special Global Session. Oral sessions, e-presentation sessions, and poster sessions will run consecutively through Thursday at noon. Immediately following, postconvention workshops will take place in the technical session area on Thursday afternoon and all day Friday.

The technical program can also go back home with you when you order the recordings.
