These are five of the planners of our Dry Cooling Symposium. I took this photo Thursday night as we were setting things up at the Holiday Inn by the Bay, downtown. At the computer are Bill and Iovanka, who were the main reasons the Symposium was a success. Bill invited all the speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, and many of the participants, basically putting the whole thing together in just a few months. Iovanka was our "producer" in a sense, and made sure everything happened just perfectly during the entire two-day conference.
My job for the last two days has been to introduce each of the six session chairs and to make various announcements throughout the symposium. During the next week or so, I'll be creating a symposium website that will include electronic copies of each presentation, information about the speakers, and various other information.
