Preparing for TAC:

This session will relate the TAC experience from a reviewer's perspective, and will attempt to identify some of the common strengths and weaknesses of projects, submissions and presentations that have come up for review by the Northeast TAC. The session will also touch on the purpose of the TAC, the logistics of a TAC meeting and a few dos and don'ts for presenters.
