Poster sessions are back this year. Posters will be displayed all day
Friday. The poster session will be held Friday afternoon, from 3 p.m. to 4
p.m.

Of course, there will be conference "extras."

On Thursday, the Women in Recorded Sound Social will take place from 6 p.m.
to 8 p.m. at Alewife, Tasting Room, 21 N Eutaw St., a five-minute walk from
the hotel. (Pay your own tab.)

Also on Thursday evening, bring your technical questions to "Ask the
Technical Committee." After, the ARSC and IASA discography committees will
have an open meeting. It will include an update on the "International
Bibliography of Discographies" and other topics of shared interest to both
committees.

Later, join ARSC President and DJ Matt Barton, his two turntables, and
guests for a special narrowcast featuring rare and special recordings from
Baltimore and beyond, old time radio magic, interviews, and surprises. Don't
touch that dial!

On Friday evening, Brandon Burke will introduce the film, "Watch the K
Foundation Burn a Million Quid," about the British prankster/provocateur
electronic group, The KLF.

For the annual Friday-evening Collectors' Roundtable/Swap, we have asked
some of the local record collectors and vendors to set up for the
conference. There should be a wide range of musical styles and prices,
ranging from the 50-cent table to premium collectables. Tables will be
available for you to set out your stock as well. Participants are invited to
bring a crate of records they would like to sell or trade, and/or a record
or two for show & tell. This event is open to the general public.

PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOPS

ARSC is offering two pre-conference workshops on Wednesday, May 9, at the
conference hotel. The Technical Committee's always-popular workshop, "All
Hands on Deck! Analog Tape Playback," will be offered for the first time as
a full-day affair. This workshop is designed for beginners, as well as the
more advanced audio professional with limited analog tape experience. The
afternoon workshop, "People, Processes, and Technology," focuses on the
assessment and digitization of audio collections, and is geared towards
institutions.

NEWCOMER ORIENTATION and MENTORING PROGRAM ARSC invites first-time
conference attendees and conference veterans to participate in the
Conference Mentoring Program. The program pairs newcomers with long-time
members, based on their shared interests. Mentors provide mentees with an
orientation to the conference, the association, and its participants in
informal meetings over the course of the conference. Only ARSC veterans who
are committed to the mentoring program should volunteer.
