Greetings! All is set for a fantastic conference. We have
received over 90 abstracts for talks and posters. The scientific program
is enclosed but is also available on our conference web page which has
the latest information about the conference.
Please note the time and day of your talk. The schedule is tight and
the Scientific Organizing Committee (SOC) would appreciate if all speakers
would stick to their time limits.
Invited speakers will have a total of 30 min. The SOC suggests 20-25
minutes of talk with the remaining time for discussion. Each of the invited
contributions and regular contributions have 15 min. The SOC suggests
10-12 min of talk followed by 3-5 min. discussion. Two overhead projectors,
a slide projector and a PC/laptop screen projector will be
available for presentations.
All posters should be posted on the first day and will remain up throughout
the conference. There will be at least two hours each day for poster-viewing.
The poster papers are numbered; please put them in your assigned order.
The space available for each poster is 4 feet x 4 feet. Please remember
to take down your posters by Thursday afternoon.
Please make your travel and lodging arrangements if you have not done
so already. Those who have requested travel support have already been informed
of the decision. If any one needs a letter of invitation for visa or other
travel purposes, please let us know immediately.
Continental breakfast is available at the Quality Inn as well as at
the conference site. Every morning posters will be available for viewing
along with continental breakfast (8-9 am), before the start of the sessions.
Lunch will be served in the Caldwell Hall, across from the Physics Building.
The banquet on Wednesday will also be in the Caldwell Hall.
Participants may bring guests to the banquet at a cost of $ 50 per guest.
Please contact Gail (firstname.lastname@example.org) to inform her about the number of
guests you would be bringing to the banquet.
There is a metro train station (College Park) a few blocks from the
Quality Inn. There is also a metro station at the Catholic University (CUA/Brookland).
The travel time is about 30 min.
