OK… it seems we have two threads going on SWAP. I’ll post my question(s) here, as this is the latest thread.

First of all, congratulations to one of your featured speakers… Adam Block ! His 10-8-2013 image of Comet ISON (which is simply beautiful) was published on MSNBC in the “Tech and Science” section. Here is a link to the story, and the image:
http://photoblog.nbc...t-for-ison-c...

Now, to my question(s). I have mailed in my registration, and am looking forward to attending this great event. However, as I have mentioned before, you have so many speakers, and so little time. Obviously, there are going to be multiple concurrent speakers… which means we cannot get to hear all of them. So, I want to start planning on what I can hear and/or must miss.

To that end, as I asked before, is there a schedule yet ?? Most important !! We NEED THE SCHEDULE. I would hate to have to try and make “last second” decisions, due to lack of information.

Also… (I know…. Questions questions questions…). Are you planning on video recording the sessions, so that attendees can obtain videos of the sessions ( especially those that we have to miss [Grrrrrrr] ).

Many thanks in advance for your response.

Thanks for your questions David. I leave for another great conference- AIC on Thursday where I present 4 times! With that pressure behind me as of next Monday, Mr. Traino and I can get serious about creating the SWAP schedule. Thanks for your patience!

Is there no credit card option for registration? I'm not a big fan of mailing things, and a cheque drawn on a Canadian bank will be extra hassle for you. Any suggestions?

Steve, did we talk privately? Send in your registration and indicate you'll pay in cash at the door.

It is with regrets that I inform you Herr Wolfy Promper will not be able to join us this year and has been removed from the presenter roster. We regret the inconvenience this may have caused. His subject matter will be covered by both Dr. Craig Stark, and OPT's Chris Hendren. Register today, classes are filling up!

Also, apologies as AIC and SWAP preparation has delayed production of IP4AP's PixInsight Part-2 series. Production will recommence 11-18 after SWAP- thank you!

Steve I wrote you privately!

Looking at the schedule, I see some seminars I really want to see, but in conflict with another. However they seem to be repeated at different times and different tracks. Are we allowed to pick and chose which we attend in order to tailor the event to our own needs?

Hi Steve...

I am pre-registered, and thus received the schedule from Warren via email. In his email he said:

"We do hope it is to your liking! While we had some presenters with time/day constraints, all other speakers graciously offered to present twice, and we have scheduled them in a manner which should allow attendees to attend all the classes they desire. "

Thus, the answer to your question is "YES".

Thanks David- glad it was worth waiting for, and sorry for that delay. It's difficult to forge a perfect schedule, but as David mentioned Steve, I think most folks should be able to catch about everything. I was constrained by 4 presenters who could only do one day. Well, see you there- we'll have some fun and learn...
