Very Tentative 2019 Program

Hi All,

Below provides a temporary program for this year’s conference. A couple of notes:

Still confirming times for meals, first panel participants, and session chairs. If you’d like to volunteer for either of the panel slots let me know.

Also, we had a little bit of time, and we’ve talked about in the past doing a round table on teaching tips/projects, etc. So, if you’ve got a cool assignment you’d like to share, let me know and I’ll put you down. Time to talk will be determined by the number of people who would like to share. tgoodnow@oregonstate.edu

Finally, I know I’m missing a couple of people’s schools. For some reason, it wasn’t getting transferred. Those will be posted in the next day or so.

I will update shortly when some things get solidified!
