Final Announcement

posted Apr 15, 2008, 11:45 AM by Jawoo Koo

We're exactly a week away!
We now attach what is pretty much the final agenda, with some flexibility on Day 3 (thanks to the Programme Committee, and to the brewery that sponsored them). Please look the agenda over carefully - particularly to check where you may have - unknown to you - been slotted into the agenda with an extra contribution or session chair task. Please also go onto the site (http://cgiar-csi.org) and add your presentation or poster details.
