Angeles November 11-13, looks to be a particularly rich and rewarding 
conference. In addition to a diverse group of interesting paper presentations, 
we'll have several demonstrations of telepresence technologies, true 
knowledge building and synthesis discussion sessions, invited speakers, 
social events including a conference dinner, and a combination of academic 
and professional perspectives throughout and in three outstanding keynote
