Head north to hear the sounds of animals coming from the National Zoo. Or venture into the hotelís natural surroundings to enjoy a quiet stroll or invigorating run through Rock Creek Park. With a Metro stop just outside the doors of the venue and area airports close by, itís a premier city destination just two Metro stops from everything DC has to offer.

We hope to build on the tremendous success of the 2015 Nice meeting, the best attended meeting in the Societyís history. We plan a traditional meeting schedule, opening on Wednesday and closing on Saturday. The format of the Washington meeting will be similar to previous meetings, beginning with a day of pre-meeting symposia on Wednesday morning and closing mid-day Saturday.

The majority of the meeting will be devoted to submitted content. In anticipation of contributions of high quality, novel scientific work, we plan to run concurrent oral sessions to showcase the highest scoring abstracts and mini-oral sessions and general poster sessions are planned to share other excellent submitted work with our members.
