We will be conducting a Workshop on Tasks on Wednesday afternoon during the Roundtable from 1:30 to 3:30.

Note well: NASA Ames is a government installation and has security controls. If you are a U.S. citizen you must show your driver’s license or proof of identify If you are a non-citizen permanent resident you will need to show a driver’s license or passport and your “green card”). If you are a non-citizen visitor, you will need a special invitation from NASA and visitor pass; see the logistics page for more details.
The Conference Hotel will be the Sheraton Sunnyvale, which is very close to NASA Ames. They are offering a discounted rate for our conference. This is a courtesy rate and we do not have a room block, so you should book early to ensure you get the special rate. We have a special booking arrangement so be sure to review the Hotel section of the logistics page carefully.
We will be announcing additional and special sessions of interest as more material becomes available. We expect to set the actual schedule for TC sessions by mid-month and announce the topical agendas early in May.
