The agenda is under development. Please do send in your suggestions. Remember, this is your conference.

I'm very open to suggestions about content, theme, speakers, sponsors, and so on. I will setup a program to ensure we have deadlines about these items.

  • Workshop Chairman: Steve Mann
  • Workshop Co-Chairman: Bill Harrison
  • Logistics Chair: MichaelAngelo Gagliardi

We have a few more slots we'd like to fill:

  • Sponsor chair - will be responsible to help find sponsors for door prizes, gifts, donations, and so on.
  • Theme & Agenda Chair - will assist with defining the agenda/theme and arranging speakers.
  • Promotion - I won't rest until every CDS member all around the globe knows about this event and is afforded every opportunity to get there or maybe we can arrange WiFi/VidCon participation for those who absolutely can't make it (with some limits).

Requirements to Assist

You must have an interest in seeing this workshop be successful and be an NSS-CDS member in good standing. You don't necessarily have to plan to attend yourself, though it would be great if you were planning to. You also don't have to live there in the St. Louis area.

I will also be glad to take suggestions about the event here on this thread.
