We encourage all researchers with interests in information flow to attend the lectures. If you want to attend the lectures, please send an email to me.
 
There is no charge to attend any of the lectures, but there is a fee for those who wish to participate in the additional activities, including the lunches and the conference dinner. The registration fee to take lunch with the group is $60, and the fee for the conference dinner, which will take place on Saturday evening, March 15, is $80.
