Our 24th annual workshop in Boston was a great success! We had record submissions and turnout, outstanding posters and talks, and an amazing keynote from Mary Peterson.We’d like to take a moment to thank our sponsors one last time, who are listed below. Their contributions make OPAM possible (and keep it free!).
Furthermore, we’d like to recognize our award winners:
– Best Talk: Monica Rosenberg
– Best Posters: Corbin Cunningham & Rachel Wynn
– Travel Awards: Rebecca Goldstein & Katherine Wood
Many thanks to Visual Cognition for awarding Best Talk & Best Poster, and to Jonathan Flombaum, Artem Belopolsky, and former OPAM organizers for judging.
In the coming months, Eric and Emma will be searching for two new organizers. If you are interested in this exciting opportunity, please feel free to drop us an email with any questions. Formal applications will occur in the new year.
Finally, we’d like to thank Justin and Jennifer for their outstanding work and guidance in organizing OPAM. Thanks, guys!Looking forward to seeing everyone next year in Vancouver!Signing off for now.
