PROM Kickoff Meeting

Materials and Process Simulation Center (MSC)
Beckman Institute
Caltech, Pasadena California

July 18-19, 2004, 8 AM


The meeting will take place in Room 115 at Caltech's Beckman Institute, 400 south Wilson (no numbers are posted, though campus maps show the BI as building 74).
The building is located south of Del Mar Blvd and north of California Blvd, at Wilson Ave.

Please be there by 8 am so that we can have a prompt start; it looks like a very full day couple of days.

There will be a $75 registration fee to cover meal, snack, and drink costs which can be paid on site.
