Keep hearing about symposia events? These are industry-sponsored breakfast, lunch, and dinner programs held outside of the official Congress schedule. They are produced completely independently of ONS. Check out the Industry-Supported Track on the online scheduler to browse this year’s events. Symposia events are held off site and usually require a separate registration through the organizer. Check the online schedule for your desired events and click the green Register button to reserve your space. Don’t delay, these industry events often fill up!
You’ll have the chance to view more than 500+ ePosters that will be presented at this year’s Congress prior to arriving on site!

Every 20 posters reviewed is worth 1 contact hour.
