New Session Hours for the 2003 Fall Meeting

Session hours for the 2003 Fall Meeting are:

  8:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. (0800h - 1000h)
10:20 a.m. - 12:20 p.m. (1020h - 1220h)
1:40 p.m. - 3:40 p.m. (1340h - 1540h)
4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. (1600h - 1800h)

The Program Committee has decided to slightly modify the format of the session hours which will increase the number of oral presentations at the meeting. Instead of the two half-day oral sessions each day as in the past, there will be four two-hour blocks each day. This change will increase the amount of time for oral sessions by about 20%.
