The conference is now days away, and we look forward to meeting each other, seeing old friends and making new acquaintances! Attendance so far is up from last year, coming from over 30 different countries. We all hope you find this experience interesting and important for your career.
We welcome in particular the 90+ first time participants. We have an orientation meeting specifically for new attendees on Sunday at 5:00 pm, in Arboretum 4 room, just before the Welcome Reception at 6:30 (in Imperial East).
Finally, check out two tours, NASA on Sunday and Thermon manufacturing plant on Wednesday. There are still a few seats available on both. Concerning the NASA tour, we will meet on Sunday morning at 8:15 in the lobby of the hotel (this time is changed from earlier postings).
