More events will be announced soon (Fireside Chats, Meet the Experts and Match.Geek), so be sure to check the catalog beforehand for possible changes in scheduling, as well as possible additions (even in the Breakout Sessions!). It’s always a good idea to map out your day ahead of time so you know where to go. I also recommend spending some time, before the conference starts, walking around and becoming familiar with the locations of the various meeting rooms, labs, etc.

If you still haven’t purchased your pass – do it now with the CUGC members-only discount! Details about the discount, as well as plans for CUGC activities at Synergy, can all be found on our CUGC@Synergy page. 

Looking forward to seeing everyone in Anaheim at Synergy 2018!
