AGIIG at CLA 2010 Edmonton, June 2-5.

I would like to update you on three AGIIG conference activities at CLA 2010, June 2-5 in Edmonton, AB. http://www.cla.ca/conference/2010/

A difference from previous years is that we will attempt a meeting prior to the CLA Interest Group Breakfast meeting.  We never have enough time at the breakfast meeting, to get through issues., such as the DSP committee minutes see http://dsp-psd.pwgsc.gc.ca/news-nouvelles/2009-11-16-e.html.  As well, we should discuss CLA’s announcement about changes to the association, at:
