A poster session will be held in parallel with and after the oral presentations are complete to encourage interaction between technology providers and potential proposers.  In addition, attendees may request a one-on-one meeting for more in depth discussions with any technology provider(s) listed on the agenda.  To request such a meeting, please contact Dr. Curt Niebur via E-mail (curt.niebur@nasa.gov) with the subject line “Technology meeting request.”  Since a limited number of private meeting rooms are available, these slots are limited to 30 minutes.  NASA may not be able to accommodate all requests for one-on-one meetings.
