Dear conference participants,
As I presume many of you know, Hurricane Sandy is now heading toward the East Coast and is likely to cause major damage. When I last checked, it is scheduled to make landfall on Monday evening or early Tuesday morning. Depending on where and when it hits land and how high the storm surge turns out to be, the effects could linger later into the week and affect the conference. We are monitoring the developments and will be in touch with you at the earliest possible moment should we need to make any changes to the conference plan. In the eventuality that we do have to make changes, I will send an email to conference participants and post an announcement on the society’s blog. Thanks in advance for your patience. We hope that the conference will take place as planned. In the interim, please let me know if I can answer any questions or be of help in any way.
2012 Conference Chair
