Dear People Interested in Science for the People:

*Science for the Peo**ple: The 1970s and Today**
**April 11-13, 2014**
**UMass Amherst*

There are just seven weeks before our conference! We have more than 100 
people preregistered and another 30 students attending the conference 
for course credit, and I expect many other students, faculty, and 
community members will attend as well. So it's big! If you haven't been 
following us recently, please check out the amazing program we've put 
together: http://science-for-the-people.org/program

Perhaps you will want to join us! If so, please note the following 
deadlines coming up:

     * Register for the conference and receive conference memorabilia. 
We need to order this stuff in advance, so if you want conference 
memorabilia, please register now. 
http://science-for-the-people.org/registration (All events are free and 
open to the public, so you can just show up... but in that case, no 
     * Order conference t-shirts. We won't be ordering many extra, so if 
you want them, now's the time to buy them! They'll be great! You buy 
them on the same site as the registration.
     * Order parking coupons for the campus center garage. This is the 
most convenient parking on campus, and with a coupon you can park in the 
garage for just $5 a day. Just let me know by March 7th how many parking 
coupons you will need and I will make sure they're put in your 
registration bag.

     * Book rooms at the reduced rate at the Campus Center Hotel, 
Clarion Hotel, and Holiday Inn (see the conference website -- 
http://science-for-the-people.org/registration -- for rates and contact 

Thank you very much!
