The basic conference schedule can be found here.   Conference participants will also receive a printed copy of this schedule with their registration materials.  A more detailed version of this schedule can be found here.   Important features to note:
Causal Inference Challenge:
We will be holding a causal inference data analysis competition!!!  Details are available here. Update: conference poster with results available here.
Lightning talks:  
There will be two sessions of lightning talks.  Lightning talks are short talks (generally 3-5 minutes -- the length will be determined by the number of participants) used to highlight the most interesting features or findings of your current research.  These talks can advertise your work, give you an opening for a discussion with someone later in the meeting, or even open the door to a new collaboration.  The May 26 talks will focus on new researchers (students or < 5 years post-PhD); to participate please visit this site.  The May 27 talks will be open to all conference participants; to participate please visit this site. ***Lightning talks will be used to determine next year's Tom Ten Have awardees!***
