1-on-1 Research Development Sessions (appointments available every day)

 *   An opportunity to meet 1-on-1 to discuss your research with Ajay Mehra
For those of you that have attended before, we've made a few changes this year. Most important is that we are imposing a limit of 50 participants per session (last year's 150+ was just too big). We've also adjusted the offerings to provide more help with your own research, and to target more specifically certain application areas (such as management, public health, and national security/crime).

One price covers all 6 days of the workshop. Given the limit of 50 participants in each session (except the conference, which is unlimited), it would be a good idea to register early. Besides, there's a 20% early bird discount! Also, fulltime students pay only half price. Visit the workshop website for full details:
