Congress Orientation Session

July 1 • 17:30-17:50

If you want to know all the “ins" and “outs" and “do" and “don'ts”, then mark this session in your agenda.

The Young Members Committee will help you find your way around the congress in terms of logistics and programming so that you don’t miss out on anything highly relevant to trainees at TTS2018.

Have the app open at http://tts.guide when you arrive so that you can follow a quick app tutorial, allowing you to use the app to its fullest potential. It’s more than just the program!

The Young Members Committee is excited to offer this opportunity. They have done the work for you!  They have read the abstracts of all poster presenters and selected the most innovative and interesting ones.

Please reserve your spot at the Young Members Corner.
