  • Find expert interview opportunities, news conference showcasing current research Monday, March 24.
  • Review 500 scientific presentations, 250 hours of educational programming and approximately 150 technical exhibits and product demonstrations.

WHEN: Saturday, March 22Thursday, March 27, 2014

WHERE: San Diego Convention Center: News conference room: 15A; news room: 15B
