All participants are invited to a reception on Monday evening. The symposium concludes with a dinner on Tuesday evening (tickets required) at which friends may offer brief remarks.

There is no registration fee for the symposium but all participants are requested to register. Those planning to attend the banquet should indicate their menu preference (a nominal fee is charged for the banquet and tickets must be reserved).

Please make your own hotel reservations. A block of rooms has been reserved at the Comfort Inn near Fermilab for the nights of Dec. 13-15. The Hotels tab gives other options.
