There are several highlights of the 2000 NFB National Convention of
interest to us in science and engineering.

To my knowledge there are two resolutions pertaining to the publishing
of scientific articles. One calls on publishers like IEEE Press
to publish in MathML so that we can read the content and
software can produce it for us in the Nemeth Braille Code.
The other asks that federal grantees when publishing work funded
by federal dollars publish in an accessible format.
Jim Gashel and Kris Cox helped craft this one.
Stress the importance of these resolutions to our peers on the
resolutions committee for helping blind students and researchers in the
field of science.

Science and Engineering Division Meeting
See the convention agenda for the correct time and place but I
believe registration is at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday July 4 at the Marriott

Science and Engineering Breakfast - 7:00 a.m. July 5 at the
     Coffee Station in the shopping plaza off the Marriott Marquis

Handwriting Workshop - Listen for announcements at the general session
for when this will occur or contact Brian Buhrow. Brian has graciously
agreed to host the workshop in his hotel room. I have received some
pretty amazing tutoring in handwriting this last fall and will pass
along what I know. A sample of my handwriting is 200 percent better than
at our last workshop.
Others will be on hand to share their bag of tricks, too.
