[LON-CAPA-users] Sponsorship for LON-CAPA Conference
Sat, 12 Jun 2004 11:59:32 -0400
Just a little piece of good news: Dell Computer agreed to contribute
funds toward one of the dinners of our upcoming LON-CAPA conference,
January 7-8, 2005, in South Carolina (I hope it's on your calendars!)
As participation in our conferences is increasing (see chart at
http://www.lon-capa.org/conferences.html), we need to re-think both the
format and the financing of these meetings.
Regarding format, I am pretty sure we are going to have far less
plenary sessions, and instead have posters (hopefully with interactive
demos), and discipline-specific parallel sessions.
Regarding supplemental financing, I think I am going to also pursue the
publishing companies - we then might have book tables at the
conference. Any other ideas would be welcome.
