Program Items of Interest
We took a good thing and made it better! This year we are offering the capability of accessing the conference program agenda and other current program information in a convenient, portable format. From your mobile device, you can now connect to the Mobile Optimized Site.
The online program agenda has been updated and now includes downloadable copies of speaker presentations, biographies, and other items that may be of interest to you and your colleagues in advance of the conference. Please check back periodically for additional updates to the program agenda.
The RIC is becoming a paperless event. A paperless format allows RIC participants the opportunity to review conference materials before the conference. Please note that hard copies of the slide presentations, technical posters and tabletops, and organization charts will not be provided on site. These are available electronically by way of the RIC website or the mobile optimized site, and can be accessed by Quick Response Codes. If you prefer a printed copy of a slide presentation, please print it and bring it with you.
NEW! Notice to RIC participants: This year you may notice a few differences in security compared to previous years. These precautionary measures will have minimal impact on participants, however, the NRC feels it would be prudent to share this information prior to the event. The Montgomery County Police Department will provide security support during the RIC. Weapons, illegal substances, and other dangerous items will not be permitted in the Conference Center. In addition, there will be screening of hand carried items at designated areas throughout the Conference Center. These security screenings will be brief and efficient. The screenings will have no impact on storage of luggage for participants who would like to check out of their hotel rooms on Thursday before the RIC has ended.
