Conference schedule, 1st-lede writethru  John McIntyre
 Feb 02, 2005 06:00 PST 

This revised schedule includes new workshops and time changes of
sessions that had to be adjusted to fit the presenters’ schedules. It is
almost inevitable that further changes will be made before the
conference, but this should be a fairly reliable guide. The conference
program will contain descriptions of the workshops.
