Data Analysis Workshop

6-10 March 2000 Sheraton Imperial Hotel and Conference Center, Research Triangle Park, NC

Please make your hotel reservations and submit your Registration Form PDF file by 4 February.

Memo from Dr. Ellis Cowling, SOS Director PDF file

The first two days (6-7 March) of the workshop are devoted to the findings from the Atlanta PM SuperSite with the following 2.5 days (8-10 March) dedicated to results from the Nashville 99 Field Intensive.

If you would like to make a presentation at the workshop please contact the appropriate session chair (email and phone provided below). If you are unsure which session would be most appropriate, please send your information to Jim Meagher.

Poster session and general discussion - This session begins immediately after the last oral presentation on Thursday. The posters on display (the boards are 4' x 8') will include those from the Atlanta SuperSite and the Nashville-related ones listed below. We plan to provide hors d'ourves and a cash bar during this session. During this time, you will be able to view the posters and engage in discussions with other researchers in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.
