Pre-IPS Workshops

Prior to the IPS Welcome Reception and kick-off of the conference, AIPN will host four workshops on Tuesday, May 21. There will be two morning workshops and two afternoon workshops, allowing attendees to register for more than one workshop and double their learning! All workshops are $200 each and can be added on to your conference registration. Registration will include a coffee break and workshop materials. The number of participants in each workshop is limited in order to facilitate the highest level of interaction.
