2008 Institute Agenda

Red Island Repository Institute, 2008

Agenda - August 11-15

The following preliminary agenda is subject to change, but is a reflection of the content that will be delivered at the RIRI session. It should also give you a sense of how the day will unfold. While not a requirement of participants, it is also assumed that evenings will provide an opportunity for more informal discussion of the issues and techniques imparted as the week progresses. Monday and Friday evening dinner events will be group events and are covered by the registration fee, as are breakfasts and lunches for all days. Dinner arrangements for Tuesday to Thursday wil be at the discretion of the participant.
