Thank you to the organizers and everyone who participated in the 3rd National EM Workshop (West), February 12-13 in Renton, WA. We’ve posted a total of eleven presentations below and in our Library. In weeks to come we hope to provide videos of these sessions as well. Please click through on header links to the underlying presentation(s) for each session.
