NOTICE: All attendees who have successfully RSVP'd by 23-JAN-2002 22:00 should have already received an "RSVP-ACK" EMail. If you did NOT receive this email, you are probably NOT registered and you won't be able to get past security. RSVP deadline is 24-JAN-2002 08:00AM. If you receive an RSVP-ACK, but late on the afternoon of the meeting, we cannot guarantee that your name will make it on the final list sent to building security (we will try).
