Hi everyone

Are you coming to PPIG? We sure hope so because we've got a nice program set up with some extremely interesting papers, plus:

- a panel from industry-savvy experts on how cognitive factors turn up in unlikely-seeming places;

- an invited paper by Gerrit van der Veer, one of the first authors to write about cognitive psychology of programming, since when he has chaired every important HCI conference you can think of;

- and a presentation by Gordon Fletcher, anthropologist turned CS/ IT expert, on research methods using qualitative data.

Not to mention York, a much-admired city, with a guided walk (weather permitting) and formal dinner in Meltons Too, an excellent restaurant in an old building accompanied by period live music. On the night before we've arranged a pub evening, and for those who wish to arrive on the evening of the 5th (e.g. to take part in the doctoral consortium, or just to hang out) there's casual grub and drinks at my house.

If you are coming, please would you speedily register for the meeting? I know it's a little while away, but the university likes to get its room registrations in early. Help calm their restive minds - register NOW.

NB I'm away next week: queries to Alistair Edwards, please, the co- chair.

(Please forward)
