    Just an update: unfortunately, Greta has to drop out for personal reasons. To fill her role as a keynote speaker, we're having Nate Phelps speak.

    Sorry, *Greta Christina* will be speaking, not David Silverman. This is what I get for not re-reading what I post.

    Hey, everyone! The description has been updated, but, in particular, take note that, if you'd like to volunteer, you can do so and you'll get a free admission to the banquet dinner at which David Silverman will speak!
