On-site schedules?

Will a printed version of the schedule be available on-site at the conference? Ike9898 20:32, 1 August 2006 (UTC)Reply


The times on this schedule are local times. I think it would be useful to specify that that and to indicate the difference between local time and UTC. And this seems to be UTC -4. This for the people who are following the conference online. This world clock can also be useful. Also the use of a 12hours time notation instead of 24hours seems confusing to me. It give me a very American, non-international impression. --Walter 22:46, 1 August 2006 (UTC)Reply


Please note that "Ames" does not refer to the Ames building. That is just dorms. You need to go to the Ames Courtroom on the 3rd floor of Austin Hall.

Video Formats

I'm rather surprised to see this conference using RealMedia... What are the chances of producing the videos in a free format?
