In follow-up to Dan's note last week, please remember that most of the Alliance All Hands Meeting will be accessible and open to all sites via the Access Grid. This includes the afternoon EOT session on Wednesday, April 30, and plenary sessions Thursday (including NSF/CISE director Peter Freeman's presentation and a Cyberinfrastructure futures panel) and Friday. If you are interested in participating, please check with your local AG operator and refer to the online meeting agenda (URL below). Although we have over 200 registered attendees that will be in Urbana, we hope to see many more Alliance expedition/team participants attending the non-travel way!
AG-tech folks - Jackie Kern would like to do a test cruise on Monday at 2pm CT see: http://agschedule.ncsa.uiuc.edu/meetingdetails.asp?MID=1096
If your site is planning to participate, please let Jackie (jkern at ncsa.uiuc.edu) and me know.
Thanks, and see you next week.

>The annual Alliance All Hands Meeting (Wednesday, April 30 through Friday, May 2) is fast approaching, starting two weeks from tomorrow! Program chairs Dick Crutcher and Miron Livny have assembled an informative and useful set of talks and panel discussions. There will also be plenty of opportunities for discussing recent work of the partnership and exciting plans for the future. The meeting gets under way with team meetings during the day Wednesday, and opens formally with a reception and poster session Wednesday evening. (If you want to come a bit earlier, we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the release of the Mosaic web browser on Tuesday, April 29: http://www.ncsa.uiuc.edu/Conferences/MosaicEvent)
