We are giving out 30 press passes to members of the community who have an interest in attending the conference. "Press passes" give their holders permission to attend the main conference, Tuesday through Thursday, 9am to 5:30pm. They don't include the proceedings, nor the demos/poster reception or UCI dinner -- all these events can be paid for separately if the person so wishes. This program targets primarily the press, highschool and college teachers, and members of not-for-profit organizations.
To qualify you must:
1 - Be a California resident (priority will be given to SoCal residents)
2 - Not be involved in academic or industrial research
To apply, please contact the conference chair lopes [at] ics [dot] uci [dot] edu
