    The main purpose of the registration is for planning purposes. We need to know how many are attending the conference, and how many will be at the Collaboration Dinner. The auditorium we will use depends on the number of attendees. We are attempting to secure University funds in the hope of avoiding a registration fee.
Every effort will be made to keep the Collaboration Dinner cost below $25 per person. The final restaurant choice will depend upon the number of attendees.
Please inform Vasken Hagopian via Email to vasken@hep.fsu.edu as soon as practical, with the following information.
    Email address:
    Arrival date and time:
    Departure date and time:
    Number at Collaboration Dinner on Friday May 10:
    Number at dinner on Saturday May 11:
We will prepare an Email list of attendees and send information from time to time.

    The Tallahassee Airport (about 5 miles from campus) is served by five airlines. The major airline in Tallahassee is Delta Airlines, with connections via Atlanta, Cincinnati and Dallas. Also Delta has connections from Miami and other Florida cities. Other airlines that serve Tallahassee are:
    US Air via Charlotte, NC.
    Northwest Airlink connections via Memphis, Tennessee
    Air Tran connections via Atlanta, and other Florida Cities.
    Continental Connection.
Not all the flights are jet airplanes, so please check before booking. Airline ticket costs vary daily (or so it seems). In general tickets purchased three weeks in advance with Saturday night stay over are the lowest cost. Air Tran is a low cost airline with no Saturday night requirement. All major car rental companies have booths at the airport.
