The conference organizers kicked off the events on Monday with a moment of silence for the victims of the shooting in Sutherland Springs, which is about 30 miles from San Antonio. (As I walked around the Riverwalk, I noticed all the flags were flying at half-staff. The security guard at The Alamo told me it was the third time this month).

They talked about new consent requirements, broad consent, data sharing, and, of course, the single IRB requirement that goes into effect Jan. 25.
