Attending CIDRAP's National Summit, Business Planning for Pandemic Influenza ?

I will be traveling to Minneapolis this afternoon to attend CIDRAP's National Summit, Business Planning for Pandemic Influenza.  Given the worrisome spread of hotspots from China to Southeast Asia and now across the Urals to Southeastern Europe and Africa, this event couldn't be more timely.  Much has been written on the enormous impact of a worldwide pandemic of all aspects of human society. The sponsors of the National Summit have made clear that the potential chaos that will ensue from a human to human outbreak of Avian Flu will be devastating not only for the directly affected human deaths and disease but on all aspects of society and our economy. What the geopolitical outcomes will be, are even harder to predict.

We will be reporting directly from the Conference on a timely basis. Hopefully the sponsors will make available wireless connectivity during the event.  If any of you are also attending and would like to meet up to discuss some of these issues, please send us an email. We'd love to hook up and will put aside time in the evening.
