22nd International Workshop on Qualitative Reasoning
Technical sessions, breaks, and lunches will take place in the
Engineering Center, shown above, which is at the southeast corner of
Colorado Avenue and Folsom Street. (For orientation purposes, the
mountains run north-south.)
Here are some useful maps:
We will have one data projector and one overhead projector available
in the meeting room, as well as facilities to play VHS videotapes &
DVDs. If you have other A/V needs, please let us know by 14
June [email deleted for archive] so we can make
arrangements. Wireless internet access will be available throughout
campus to conference participants; please pick up the code when you
Note: it will greatly minimize computer-swapping issues - and the
associated time loss - if you bring your presentation on a USB drive
Here is a 1.7MB tgz file
containing the Proceedings (cover page, frontmatter, and papers).
You can also grab pdf versions of individual papers via the links
