NEW ONLINE INTERACTIVE CALENDAR MAKES PERSONAL SC PLANNING EASY
For the first time in the history of the SC conference 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.
The 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. To use the interactive calendar go to the main SC2002 website at and click on "Interactive Calendar" in the menu bar.
