The invitation is extended to all personnel associated with the transition to digital, both technical and content. Tuesday, November 5, 2002 will begin with panel discussions and wraps up by 5:00 pm on November 7th.

Breaks, lunches throughout the Symposium and dinner on the 6th are provided through the generosity of the sponsoring organizations. These provisions by the sponsors allow us, once again, to produce an event without charging a registration fee. We are very appreciative of their support.
