TThe symposium consists of a dinner on Sunday night (October 24) followed by a full-day workshop on Monday (October 25).
The Apprentices will be observers during the symposium, can attend the symposium dinner, and will participate in critiquing and providing feedback to the proposers. Selected apprentices will be awarded a student volunteer position of your choice.
