There are many excellent topic contributed, regular contributed, and poster sessions as well. But at this writing, details are not available. Due to limitations, some who may have wanted a presentation had to be converted to a poster. This information is still up in the air, as the program has not been completely set and there are details to work out. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Peter.Westfall@ttu.edu, and see you at JSM2009!
