An "Almost Paperless" Seminar
URISA BC will be doing our part to help the environment by minimizing the amount of printed material handed out at the seminar. All materials (seminar program, speaker biographies, presentations abstracts, sponsor descriptions, etc.) will be available before and after the seminar on the URISA BC website at www.urisabc.org.
