SHINE Newsletter March 2018

Dear SHINE Community,

The SHINE 2018 Workshop proposals have been selected and we have an ambitious and exciting agenda this year.  Please check our website for a complete list of session descriptions.

In addition, the registration for the 2018 SHINE workshop is now open. SHINE will take place from July 30th to August 3rd (student day July 29th) in Cocoa Beach, FL jointly at the Courtyard Marriott (posters) and Hilton (oral sessions). The scientific program (27 sessions) and details about the registration and abstract submission processes are listed in the SHINE website ( shinecon.org/CurrentMeeting.php<http://shinecon.org/CurrentMeeting.php> ). Rooms are available at both hotels at the rate of $169 (Courtyard Marriott) and $159 (Hilton). Researchers who are required to pay the per diem rate should contact Noé Lugaz or Umbe Cantu directly.

The registration fee includes one poster per person; this year, no additional posters are allowed.

Important deadlines:
— Student support request deadline: April 20th (through the SHINE website) - By this deadline, Ms. Cantu should have received the letter of support from the student’s advisor.
—Early-bird registration ($450) deadline: May 18th - extra fee of $50 afterwards
