NEW - Webinar Information
Most of the Workshop will also be set up as a Webinar (call-in and connection
information below). If you are interested in participating in the workshop via webinar, please email
so we can let you know where workshop materials are posted beforehand and add your name to our list.

It is likely to be difficult for us to respond to individual off-site questions
during the workshop, but we will respond to you each as time allows, so please use the webinar
"participant chat" option for questions as these arise. Or, as always, feel free to email
workshop instructors anytime.
