      Small Wind folks,
      Don't hesitate to submit your abstract ideas for AWEA's annual conference - we'd like to have robust participation in the small wind technical and business track sessions as well as posters! See below for details on next week's deadline.

      Please keep in mind that we're hoping to have a Small Wind Pavilion in the Expo if enough companies can reserve their booths early: http://www.awea.org/conference/wp05/WP05exhibits.html

      Another opportunity to consider is the 2005 Solar World Congress scheduled for next Aug 6-12 in Orlando, FL - ASES members have expressed strong interest in small-scale and community wind! Program proposals are due next Friday Oct 15: http://www.swc2005.org/program_overview.htm

      Thanks for your participation,

      Date: Sat, 2 Oct 2004 15:22:07 -0400
