Site Updates

May 13, 2002

Registration: Pre-Conference Registration is now closed. On-site registration will be available starting at 5:00 PM, Saturday May 18th.

May 13, 2002

Lunch: Due to budgetary restrictions, there will only be one lunch (on Wednesday, 22 May 02) provided to conference attendees. If there are any special dietary restrictions we should know about, please let us know in advance so we can plan the right number of vegetarian, etc. meals. We are reviewing registration data and anticipated expenses to see if it is feasible to add another lunch on Thursday. Send your requests to Will Tracz.

Keynotes: 2) In a break from tradition, keynote speakers will not answer questions from the floor after delivering their addresses. Instead, written questions will be collected during and after the presentation and delivered to the session chair, who will then consolidate, summarize, and paraphrase them for the keynote speaker to answer. Students will be periodically walking up and down the aisles with a small sign indicating they are collecting questions starting approximately 1/2 hour after the beginning of the keynote speaker's address. They will have note cards to write the questions on, or you may submit the question on any note paper.

May 10, 2002

Please Note: Discount theme park tickets are still available but order forms can no longer be processed and tickets sent to you by postal mail. Instead, order forms can be sent in and tickets can be picked up at the hotel business center, which is located next to the conference registration area. Tickets can also be purchased directly at the business center.
