It will be on the afternoon of Friday, November 6th. Stufents are welcome to attend. If you do plan to attend, please contact Professor Russell Wahl (see below), or contact Charlie Huenemann, so the hosts can get an accurate headcount.

Russell Wahl writes, “We will begin with a lunch in the Bengal Cafe on the second floor of the student union building on the ISU campus.  There is parking in the lot next to the union, but I need to know how many out of town cars will be coming so that I can obtain parking passes for that afternoon. I can then have someone at the door to the union give out the passes.I also need to know roughly how many people will be coming to the conference so I can arrange enough food for lunch. As you can see, we have a diverse program beginning with a keynote address by Charlie Huenemann at one pm. I am also attaching the abstracts for the papers The sessions will be in the Salmon River Rooms on the third floor of the Student Union Building.”
