(2) I would like for the students in the REU program to have a chance to
interact with undergraduates at other universities.  If you have
undergraduates doing VR, multimedia computing, or similar who might want
to use the Access Grid to meet with our students, please let me know.

(3) On Thursday, August 2, and Friday, August 3, we'll host a 2 day
research conference on Virtual Environments using the Access Grid.  This
will be an appropriate venue for presenting student papers as well as
faculty work in progress.  We intend to issue a conference proceedings
