WOW!  Fantastic FORCE2016 Conference
Thanks to all Who Contributed to the Success  

We are coming down from a bit of a high. The mass of positive feedback from attendees at #FORCE2016 is almost overwhelming. Clearly this is going to be a very hard act to follow, but we are committed to continue the energy and enthusiasm as we go forward towards 2017.

The credit for this must go to our outstanding conference organising team. In particular we need to single out Melissa Haendel, OHSU as conference chair. Her continuing enthusiasm, energy and tenacity were at the heart of making the meeting the success it was. Her continued commitment to experimenting and testing the boundaries of what a meeting can be, alongside a continuous focus on working to bring new voices into the conversation (35 travel fellows!) shows what is possible. Thank you Melissa for all your work in bringing this vision of what FORCE2016 could be to life. Thank you for bringing together and leading the team that made it happen.

We also want to acknowledge all those who contributed to the conference through work on the Conference Committee, the local organizing committee, and those on the ground at the event. It is the many pieces working together that make a great conference. Thank you for your contribution.  View on website.
