  • Several networking events
  • The gala dinner at the acclaimed Art Institute of Chicago, including a private viewing of its world-class Impressionism exhibit.

    Abstract review is underway, and the full technical program will be announced in early July.

    Take some time before or after the conference to explore the best Chicago has to offer. The conference venue, the Radisson Blu Aqua, provides a location just two blocks from Millennium Park, Grant Park, the Art Institute of Chicago, and Michigan Avenue, including the Magnificent Mile of shopping and dining, and easy access on foot or via public transportation to Chicago’s museum campus (The Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium, Adler Planetarium).
