Hello again: Here are more details about the US/Japan workshop. Please send your abstracts to me by e-mail with a one-page pdf attached. Include title, name, affiliation, and e-mail address. I put a sample abstract on the website. Abstract deadline will be Friday Oct 13 which will give me enough time to pull together a program. My intention is to have mostly oral presentations. In the e-mail, indicate to me whether you prefer to do a poster. There's time for about 20 oral presentations (this is what we had at the last CT workshop). I'll give precedence to our Japanese colleagues and talks specifically on CTs/flow. We'll have a poster session Friday morning Nov. 3 in the Swarthmore Science Commons. Your best option for housing is to remain at the APS-DPP conference hotel (Philadelphia Marriott) through Sat Nov. 4. I checked with the Marriott and they will honor the conference rate even through Sunday Nov. 5. Here's the housing website (housing deadline is Oct. 6): http://www.aps.org/meet/DPP06/hou.cfm The regional rail line is called R3 Media/Elwyn and your journey will be between Market East (right at the Marriott) and Swarthmore (right on campus). The trip takes about 30 minutes and costs about $4. The following website has train schedules (both weekday and weekend), plus maps and other information: http://www.septa.org/service/rr_schedules.html Registration will be on site and will cover the cost of the banquet, coffee breaks, snacks, printing, etc (about $100 but still being planned). After the workshop, on Saturday afternoon, I'd be happy to host a visit to the historic old city of Philadelphia (Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell). Depending on numbers, there's a very nice horse and buggy guided tour. cheers, mb Contact information: Japan: Tsutomu Takahashi, Nihon University, e-mail: tom@pyxis.phys.cst.nihon-u.ac.jp US: Mike Brown, Swarthmore College, e-mail: doc@swarthmore.edu
