IAO is working on ways to reduce the amount of paper we use at our conferences. This is an effort both to be responsible toward our environment and to increase the quality and timeliness of the resources provided through this learning experience. However, we do know that completely reducing paper altogether can make the learning experience harder for some, which is why this conference is paper lite rather than completely paper free. Electronic program materials will replace most paper resources and for those materials we receive in advance will be accessible online before, during, and after the program on the IAO website.
