Note, by the way, that this meeting is distinct from the technical session
listed on Thursday morning, chaired by Tim B-L.

There are plenary sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings at 8:30. (I
could find no online mention of these among the conference information --
and I work here at NCSA -- but maybe I'm just too stupid...)

I realize it will potentially be late, but I would consider Monday or
Tuesday evenings, *after* the reception or banquet, to be reasonable
options. An advantage of meeting earlier in the week is that there is more
time for additional meetings if necessary.

Whatever is decided on, if someone will give me an official decision about
time, and at least a vague notion of headcount, I will see to it that there
is a place for us to be, and announce it here. To ensure that space is
available at the time decided, it would be better if we decide soon. This
will be especially true if we are competing with the BOFs on Wednesday
