Full-day tutorials are being offered on Sunday and Monday, 17 and 18
November. These are not included in the technical program registration
and require separate registration.
A special Tutorials
Passport for one or two days is available. A one-day passport (either
Sunday or Monday) entitles you to attend any tutorials offered on that
day, a tutorial luncheon, and your selection of notes for one full-day
tutorial. A two-day passport gives you approximately a 20% discount
on the price of two one-day passports. Your selection of tutorial notes
must be specified on the registration form. An additional benefit of
the Tutorials Passport is that you can purchase additional tutorial
notes at a significantly reduced rate.
Seating at the tutorials
is on a first-come, first-served basis. You are welcome to sit in on
as many other tutorials as you like for the day(s) you are registered,
but you will receive only the notes that you reserve in advance.

presentation of the notes ticket(s) provided in your registration packet.
You will only receive notes for the tutorial(s) you selected when you
