[visionlist] Honoring Al Ahumada – Al-apalooza at VSS 2017 (second call for participation)Posted: March 2, 2017
Fellow vision scientists,
For some time, our long-time NASA colleague Al Ahumada has been
making vague noises about retirement, but now we are starting to
think that he might really do it. And so we are planning an event
to celebrate his long and illustrious career for the afternoon and
evening of May 24th, 2017, in St. Pete Beach, Florida, immediately
following the annual meeting of the Vision Sciences Society. The
precise details are still being worked out, but we are envisioning
an afternoon talk session and an evening group dinner, see below
for a tentative schedule. We have created a web site for the
there’s not much there now but we will be updating it with details
as they become definite.
If you would like to give a talk, please contact the organizers.
Talks can range from serious scientific presentations to brief
anecdotes relating to Al and his work.
The talk session will be open to all, with no registration fee.
Payment will be required for the evening dinner, we are still
working on the logistics.
If you think you may attend, please fill out the following short
questionnaire at the end of this message, and return by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
It will be a big help to have a rough participant count.
With apologies to those who have already responded to the first
notice in November,
Jeff Mulligan and Beau Watson
