                          Michigan State University in East Lansing, MI.

Specialized sessions will focus on the particular needs of new users,
system administrators, and experienced users.  The preliminary schedule
is below.

A workshop fee of $380** will cover costs of the workshops, continental
breakfasts and lunches for all three days, and dinner on Friday evening.
 Checks should be made out to Michigan State University.

**We have some funds available from our NSF ITR grant to support
stipends to aid with registration and travel costs.  To be eligible for
assistance, you must be an active CAPA or LON-CAPA user, and plan to run
courses on either system in the Fall at your institution.  Please let us
know whether you would like to be considered for such support.

Please make your own flight arrangements with your preferred carrier to
the Lansing, Michigan airport.

Lodging is provided by the Candlewood Suites.  We have arranged a
discounted price of $69/night plus taxes for a studio suite.  These
rooms include a small kitchenette.  Please see:  http://www.candlewoodsuites.com/main/suite_tour.cfm

To book your room, please call 1-888-Candlewood (226-353-9663), and use
the “LON-CAPA Group” when making your reservation.  Do NOT book online
because you will not receive the discount.
