10:30 --- Virial Equation State for Gas-liquid-solid Equilibrium --- Ting Chen Hanson
1. 3rd Virial coefficient is a monotonically decreasing function of T.
2. A cubic virial EOS P=RT/v+B/v2+C/v3 accurately prescribes gas-liquid equilibrium.
3. The cubic virial EOS can be extended P=(RT/V)(1+B/V+C/V2+U/Vn+W/V2n) for gas-liquid-solid equilibrium.

15:15 --- Over-the-Shoulder --- Andreas Wagner
     "I'm thinking it's time for an Over-the-Shoulder-style screencast-tutorial-talk with fifo-style forth, say, writing a simple sixel graphics waterfall oscope/logic-analyzer on the psoc5lp sourcing from psoc adc's. To exercise benefits of viewing the parameters as a fifo and not exclusively as a stack, adc samples could have phase info, trigger metadata, etc and the fifo could be filtered (line-wise) and subsequently factored into digital bits, bytes, and protocol packets. This would run on mecrisp-stellaris forth. I'll be running mecrisp on a PSoC 5LP."

16:00 ---
CLEAN UP AND ADJOURN

===========

     We try to stick to the schedule.  Remember that schedule slip is sometimes unavoidable.  Sometimes somebody runs a little long or short.  We've had speakers who just didn't show up.  

     Once in a while we shuffle things around.   This is not done casually, maliciously, or for the amusement of the Program Chairman.  Really,  you can believe what you want.  We've heard the rumors.  Many of them are completely unfounded.

      If you're desperate to see a particular thing at a particular time please mention it and we'll try to accommodate you.

     The schedule above may be reformatted or line-justified but please transmit it verbatim and in its entirety or not at all.  A link to this page is preferred.

     No Newsgroup posts or other media distribution please!  Contact me and we'll discuss it BEFORE you proceed.
