PDC'2000 schedule

The following conference schedule attempts to mix and match a variety of activities in an interactive way. Primarily we are talking to an academic audience, but there are specific slots where we will try to reach a broader computer and arts community in New York. We plan to involve facilitators and discussants actively in each session so that audience participation is a real part of the conference.
