If you would like to join some of us for dinner beforehand, we are

join us at Fiasco's Grill, at the corner of Baseline and 27th way,
just west of Highway 36 / 28th street.
When: 7:00 P.M. Thursday, May 13, 2004
Main Speaker: Chris Riddoch <chris at syntacticsugar dot org>
Talk: Automatic Summarization of High-Traffic Email Lists
Because most free software projects are managed on email lists,
the amount of mail a typical developer needs to read can be
quite large. I am developing a tool to generate human-readable
summaries of the discussion taking place on busy lists, and will
describe how I am using Perl, R, and other free-software
technologies to develop this tool. This talk will focus on the
tools and techniques, rather than specific algorithms.
* Go west on Baseline and turn right on Broadway.
* Turn right on Regent Drive.
* Take the first right that is not a parking lot. This is
before you get to the pedestrian crosswalk and the
* Go straight until you get to the parking lot. Parking is
free after 5:00. Tennis courts will be to the east.
You'll be very close to the intersection of Baseline and
* The building will be directly to the north, enter through
the door on the left.
