[From Rick Marken (2002.03.20.0850)]
I will be sending this announcement out periodically over the next few
months. Please register for the 2002 meeting of the CSG as soon as
possible, while there are still good seats left.
The Annual Meeting of the Control Systems Group will be held at Aqueduct
Conference Center near Chapel Hill, North Carolina, July 24 - 28, 2002.
The conference center is especially suited for our group. We will be the
only group using the facility. It has a beautiful main building in which
meals are served 3 times a day. The food is "home cooked" and delicious.
In addition to the three meals a day, the meeting spaces (there are at
least 3 lovely meeting rooms with windows, flip charts, etc.) are
included in the fee we will pay. The fee also includes snacks and soft
drinks for breaks. The bedrooms are located in 2 cottages and are very
similar to a nice motel room. Each bedroom has 2 double beds and a
private bath. Each of these 2 cottages has a great meeting place to meet
or hang out! The entire facility is air conditioned, which we will
probably need in July in Chapel Hill! Each building is in close
proximity to the other. The conference center is located in a beautiful
wooded area right outside Chapel Hill. The web site is:
