    SPEAKERS: We would like copies of all powerpoint/keynote talks for the
    online archive.  We would especially like to have these *before* your
    talks, if at all possible, so that they can be uploaded onto one of our
    STScI laptops before your session.
       o * Please name your presentation files ,
    e.g. aeinstein.ppt *
       o * Please email your talk to tullos@stsci.edu, or be prepared to
    have us transfer it via memory stick as soon as possible after you arrive. *

    archived.  The live link is available through
    
    http://www.stsci.edu/institute/itsd/information/streaming
    
    You may want to pass this on to your colleagues.  All available talks
    will be made available as supporting material to the webcasts themselves.

    Connectivity at STScI.  The STScI Auditorium, where the workshop is
    being held, has open-access wireless on our Visitor's Network.  We also
