DPS 2002 MEETING WORKSHOPS & SATURDAY NIGHT STAYS

The anticipated workshops for the 2002 DPS meeting are listed below for
planning purposes. There are 4 workshops planned for Sunday afternoon
and one each for lunchtime on Monday and Tuesday. Please contact the
workshop lead if you are interested in attending so we can get an
accurate count of the required facilities.  

Also note that we have tried to start the Sunday workshops late in the
afternoon so that attendees can fly in during the morning. This is due
to the lack room availability at the hotel on Saturday night. If you
must arrive on Saturday and need accommodations please contact Hunter
Waite (hunterw@umich.edu) to help with the accommodations.

1) IAU Workshop for Planetary System Nomenclature, lead Professor Kaare
Aksnes - Sunday 1-4pm
