Track Sessions

There are more than 60 presentations this year distributed across the following tracks:

Birds-of-a-Feather Informal Meetings

To give CUMREC attendees even more opportunities to network, CUMREC has added Informal Birds-of-a-Feather meetings during lunch on Monday, May 13. If you want to sit with others who share your professional interests, check the designated bulletin board near the conference registration desk, which will allow you to sign up for your area of interest. Table signs in the lunch area will direct participants to appropriate areas of the lunch room.

Special Interest Groups

To provide an opportunity for attendees to network with colleagues who have similar interests and responsibilities, Special Interest Group (SIG) meetings are offered. Each SIG has a coordinator who will facilitate discussion and collaboration on the specified topics. The sessions will enable attendees to share their experiences and insights as well as listen to the advice and experiences of others with similar concerns and objectives.

Night with the Minnesota Twins

Join your CUMREC colleagues for a night at the ballpark Saturday, May 11, when the Minnesota Twins play the New York Yankees. Take advantage of a night of exciting, big-league baseball entertainment for just $28 per person, which includes a ticket and round-trip bus ride to the stadium. Tickets to the game can be ordered through the online registration form.
