FRAGRANCE-FREE EVENT. For the health and safety of facilitators and participants, it is important that everyone come fragrance-free to any colloquium talk. That means not having any scented products on your body, hair, or clothes and not using any product with a fragrance or smoking/vaping for the duration of the event. If you wear fragrance to this event, other community members may become ill, and you will be asked to wash off a product that makes another person ill or leave if that is not possible. For more information on how and why to go fragrance-free, please go to:,, or If you have questions, or if you are not sure you can be fragrance-free, please contact the conference organizers at
