contribute to our proposed session in Ann Arbor.
The workshop schedule has been changed owing to changes in the
environment. It will be held for three days, Tuesday October 13
through Thursday October 15, in Ann Arbor. There is no charge for
the workshop, and you're on your own for travel and housing.
