Short Courses

The EI Symposium complements the technical papers and social programs with a series of two- and four-hour classes taught by experts from around the world. These courses move from introductory to advanced in content, allowing attendees the opportunity to explore new areas or gain more depth in others. 

Students who register for EI before the early registration deadline receive one complementary short course with their symposium fee.
The full roster of EI 2018 Short Courses will be confirmed later this year. In the meantime, check out course details for the classes offered in 2017, some of which are repeating this year.
