      I'll be there.
      Don't ask what clinical trials can do for you, ask what you can do for clinical trials.

        How did I miss this post ... I guess I never peek into this forum. Maybe we could also post this in the life forum and care forums? I know we're not supposed to duplicate post, but I think this should be an exception.

        Tentatively, we will all come - me, Chad and Medium Boy. We went in 2005 and people who saw Small Boy then will barely recognize him; he spent much of the sessions sacked out dead asleep on Chad with his chair laid back! He has grown a ton. We, however, look the same.

        ETA: just looked at hotel rates; $249 is the cheapest. Will there be any special rates for the conference? At that rate, perhaps we won't be there .... we'll see.

            I've got my room reserved...dont think it was $249! Yes, there is a block of rooms reserved for this event. I will double check on the rate.

                This is the symposium schedule so far. I don't know exactly what time
                Dr. Young and Dr. Davies time slots are when they will be meeting with the SCI community. Hope to see you there Jim!

                      It says the schedule is tentative and subject to change, but will these days definitely be when it will take place?

                        Some of us from over here might look into W2W (and W2W is one of the best venues to meet great people and friends), but we have some international planning traveling ahead of us this fall, like NoSCoS in Gothenburg Sweden and Hong Kong China. Best to all the W2W participants.

                          @Jodi, The dates and place are etched in stone. The scientists, researchers and company speaking time slots may be adjusted a little due to their personal schedules here and there. There may be also more speakers yet to be added that can be dovetailed into time slots. We are packing as many super researchers and speakers in this year as possible! There is super information to be shared this year. It's a must see!

                          @Leif, We hope to see you guys there. Hope you can make it!
