Science Online '09 Session Planner

Students, when planning what sessions you want to attend keep in mind that we can only split up into three groups. So, there is a maximum of three sessions we can attend for each time slot. Please write the name of the session you want to attend under each time slot. Don't just go to by session titles. Read the descriptions and click on the session page to read any information the presenter has put on their wiki page to make sure it is a session you would like to attend.
