I'll be sending this workshop schedule to the CR list momentarily -
but wanted registrants to have it first (let me know if you spot
errors or omissions)!

My GA, Claudia Serbanuta is helping me assemble the preliminary
workshop proceedings so that each of you can review the extended
abstracts prior to the conference. Our target is October 15, and you
may receive requests from her for your bio or other information over
the next few days as we ready this preliminary proceedings for

Joe Tennis will oversee the assemblage of the final workshop
proceedings for which all authors are eligible to submit a final paper
by November 26th. I'll bring copyright release statements to the
workshop for those of you who know that the final extended abstract
will also serve as the final workshop submission. After the workshop,
all authors will receive the template and other instructions for the
final paper.
