Rapid fire talks

Rapid fire talks are 5 minute presentations during which the scientists can pitch their research. The rapid fire talks are in 2 sessions; one on Thursday September 8 and one on Friday September 9.
Most abstracts will also be presented as posters.
When the authors permitted that the abstracts of their talks could be released to the public, they can be downloaded below.
