HEDP Summer School affirmed for Aug 7 through Aug 13 at UC Berkeley The key individual for the HEDP association is Don Correll Participant number at the workshop assessed at 50 with the likelihood being as high as 70. Clark Kerr Campus is found six pieces southeast of the fundamental UC Berkeley grounds and has its own particular stopping. Wear needs a superior gauge of the quantity of members The Granlibakken Hotel and Resort in Lake Tahoe (where ICUIL is occurring: http://www.llnl.gov/icuil ) can be an option. A council should be amassed to Don with the Summer School association ( promoting, program, lodging)
