Welcome to the Lounge, a place where you can have conversations with your colleagues over a virtual cup of coffee (provided free of charge). There are two main sections of the Lounge, Open Discussion and Instant Messenger.

Open Discussion: "Open discussion" provides a place for you to raise new topics of conversation that are of general interest and do not specifically pertain to a paper, poster, or panel. We also invite you to use this area to give us feedback and to share your experiences participating in this conference.

Instant Messenger: Please use the instant messenger to see who is currently on-line and to send a personal message to them. The instant messenger allows you to have those more casual "hallway conversations" that you would have when meeting a colleague at a professional meeting.
