Since the schedule evolves a bit from one workshop location to another, we’re archiving the schedule as it was at the end of each workshop.

Note the HELP!! menu item above. Use it if you’re too shy to ask a question out loud. Also use it to help the StatPREP organizers by posting comments, criticisms, suggestions, and such.
