  • Dates: 24 – 25 Mar, 2017

The limited number of participants contributes to a high faculty to attendee ratio. The cost of the workshop is $250 for fellows and $500 for faculty. The cost of the workshop includes the course itself and all meals. Attendees are responsible for their own travel and hotel costs.
