All other trainees participated in the poster session.
Attendance was requested for current trainees as well as for all former trainees still in training at IU. Current trainees were required to make either an oral or poster presentation (decided upon abstract evaluation), and past trainees were also welcome, but not obligated to present. Other students, faculty and staff were welcome and encouraged to attend.
