By popular request, a Poster Session will be held on Tuesday, January 10th, after the Lab visits. Posters can of course otherwise be presented for the entire duration of the meeting. A prize will be awarded for the best poster!

You can sign up for the Lab Visits during registration in the lobby on Tuesday morning, first-come, first-served. The capacity is limited, so be quick:

For those interested, the program of our previous meeting, NMR 2010, can be found here.
