  1. Is there a possibilty of remote attendance?? I had the opportunity to remote-attend the CERCLL conference in Tuscon, Arizona in January, for an 85$ fee. It was very helpful to listen to some presentations twice..
    Will there be any material at all made available for those who cannot attend??
    Kind regards
    Grace Boas

  2. Sorry for the late reply! We did not have remote attendance this time but we might consider doing it in the future. Thanks for your suggestion and interest in our event.
