We would like to acknowledge the important contributions of all the session chairs (below), and give special thanks to Marcelino Anguiano Chavez (PhD candidate, UIUC) and Prof. Ruike Zhao (OSU). The success of the conference was largely due to their dedication. The chairs spent time before the conference to train on how to use the online platform. During the conference, they helped speakers solved a myriad of technical issues, as well as moderating the sessions. Thank you very much for your hard work and quick thinking.
Morressier has created a web portal for the Virtual Technical meeting. You can access the prerecorded talks and recorded live sessions at https://www.morressier.com. Once you are logged in, click the event name “SES Virtual 2020” on the left menu under “My Conferences”. This will bring you to the conference site where you will see a Sessions (live presentation, now recorded) and Submissions (pre-recorded videos/posters) tabs.
