Thanks to the hard work of the ADSA members who submitted proposals, the program committee chairs, and the chairs of the special and invited symposia and workshops, the Overall Program Committee is pleased to present the 2017 Annual Meeting Symposia and Workshop schedule.

The 2017 ADSA Annual Meeting program page has been updated to include the complete lineup of symposia and workshops, by day, along with descriptions of each, confirmed speakers, and presentation topics (if available). We will be updating this page regularly, so please check back often.

Please note that in addition to the six pre-conference symposia and workshops that run on Sunday, late-breaking abstracts will be presented on Sunday afternoon. Post conference symposia will be held Wednesday afternoon (the official meeting ends at noon on Wednesday) and all day Thursday at the Omni William Penn Hotel.

We look forward to your participation in the most comprehensive, global dairy science meeting in the world, June 25 to 29, in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Please be sure to visit the 2017 Annual Meeting website for updates, and help spread the word about this landmark meeting.

When you think of science communication, you might think of TED talks or museum talks or video talks, or... people giving lectures. It's a lot of people talking. But there's more to sci comm than that. This week host Bethany Brookshire talks to three people who have looked at science communication in places you might not expect it. We'll speak with Mauna Dasari, a graduate student at Notre Dame, about making mammals into a March Madness match. We'll talk with Sarah Garner, director of the Pathologists Assistant Program at Tulane University School of Medicine, who takes pathology instruction out of...

What If?
There's plenty of speculation about what Donald Trump might do in the wake of the election. Would he dispute the results if he loses? Would he simply refuse to leave office, or even try to use the military to maintain control? Last summer, Rosa Brooks got together a team of experts and political operatives from both sides of the aisle to ask a slightly different question. Rather than arguing about whether he'd do those things, they dug into what exactly would happen if he did. Part war game part choose your own adventure, Rosa's Transition Integrity Project doesn't give us any predictions, and it isn't a referendum on Trump. Instead, it's a deeply illuminating stress test on our laws, our institutions, and on the commitment to democracy written into the constitution. This episode was reported by Bethel Habte, with help from Tracie Hunte, and produced by Bethel Habte. Jeremy Bloom provided original music.
