We are pleased to announce that the 6th annual Computer Lab Management 
Conference, commonly known as LabMan, will be held at Cornell University on 
Tuesday, June 21 and Wednesday, June 22, 2005.

LabMan was conceived as a casual, small scale, inexpensive, intimate 
conference intended for persons who manage, supervise or are otherwise 
involved with maintaining computing labs in higher education, K-12 or 
library facilities.

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet colleagues from other 
institutions who, like them, face various challenges in putting together 
resilient, robust, academic computing labs. The conference features a 
two-day series of presentations and discussions covering a range of current 
lab management topics.

Because of the low-key nature of the conference, there is ample time for 
questions and answers during and after the presentation. Frequently, the 
discussions extend beyond the presenter and the attendees to an exchange 
among the attendees themselves. Moreover, themed breakout groups add to the 
exchange of ideas. Many people find this "cross-pollination" to be very 

This year's conference has moved to the Northeast in the hope that we can 
encourage more participation from the region while maintaining the strong 
base of attendees from the Midwest.  We feel that the value of the 
conference will continue to persuade repeat attendance, and as the 
conference moves into new areas it will continue to grow and bring in new 
people with new ideas to share.

Registration fees for the conference at Cornell are $170.  Included in the 
registration are an evening reception on Monday June 20, a buffet breakfast 
and lunch each day of the conference, a picnic dinner at scenic Taughannock 
Falls State Park Tuesday evening, and 2 days of presentations and 
information focused entirely on computer lab management.

On-campus housing will be available for $52 per night for a single and $38 
per night for double occupancy.  This dorm was opened in 2002, is fully air 
conditioned, and is conveniently located adjacent to the conference center.

We hope to see many old friends from previous LabMan conferences, and many 
new attendees, too.  Cornell has been represented at every LabMan so far, 
so we clearly feel that the knowledge and contacts made are well worth the 
price.  Please consider joining us, and also please pass this invitation 
along to anyone you know who may be interested.
