This year, CAST is doing away with its traditional poster sessions.
In their place, we offer the newly introduced interactive sessions that
combine poster and oral presentations. In addition to a poster
our interactive sessions include a 5-minute `rapid fire' oral
presentation for each presenter. The oral presentations will take
Monday evening in four separate booths, where papers will be presented
according to the schedule provided at http://www.aiche.org/sites/default/files/docs/conferences/event/monday.pdf.
I am hoping that this new format will offer more opportunities for
interaction between presenters and attendees, thereby enhancing the
overall quality of CAST sessions.
Best wishes, Nick Sahinidis
