series, attendees now have an online calendar that they
can use to customize their personal schedule for SC2002.
The online calendar, which debuted today (September
30), provides an easy way to navigate through the 67
technical papers, 31 tutorials, 5 plenary sessions,
6 panels, 32 poster presentations, 16 Masterworks sessions
and 25 Birds of a Feather programs currently scheduled.
online calendar is created so that after picking the
sessions you want to attend, the information is compiled
and sent to you via email for storing on your laptop
or PDA. The calendar will be updated about once a week
as needed, and will remind attendees to update their
personal agendas just before heading off to Baltimore.
