50th DPS Meeting Workshop Information and Deadlines

NOTE: Meeting space for Workshops is available at the Knoxville Convention Center on Sunday, 21 October starting at 8:00 am through Friday, 26 October until 8:00 pm. It will be extremely difficult to get people into Knoxville on Saturday, October 20 to attend a meeting on Sunday. Attendees could possibly arrive on Sunday morning to attend Sunday afternoon workshops. The LOC and AAS staff are working to find meeting space so that workshops can be held on Saturday, 27 October, if you want to meet on this day.
