EAS 2005 Main Conference

Something's different this year that you need to be aware of. Traditionally, our Short Course has run all day Monday, Tuesday and finished at Noon on Wednesday. Moreover, traditionally the Conference has begun, then, after lunch on Wednesday, with lectures on Thursday and Friday mornings, and workshops in the afternoon.

This year, it's different, so pay attention and take notes.

Our Short Course this year will run all day Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday - right up to 5:00 p.m. n Wednesday. And, the Conference itself begins Wednesday Morning at 8:30 a.m. Yes, the Short Course and Conference overlap - all day on Wednesday! Everybody gets an extra half day to take part in our extraordinary 50th blowout right after lunch, honoring EAS, its history and our part in it.
