ISA Convention Preliminary Program with ESS Bookmarks

Charlie Chester has organized the 2008 Convention’s program with bookmarks pointing to environmental panels. Download the file, open it, and click on the “Booknarks” tab on the left side of the screen to navigate the document. An excerpt of his message to the GEP-ED list: “I spent some time bookmarking the environmental sessions in the 622 (!) page “preliminary program,” and realized that some of you might find my procrastinating on useful activities somewhat helpful. Please note that this is NOT comprehensive–I gave up on page 464 when I realized that I would not have the patience to spend Saturday indoors. Also, I skimmed through it quite quickly, so I’m sure I’ve missed a session or two (or more).”
