New Look for Past Conferences Web Pages

We are pleased to present the new layout for the Past Conferences section of the website. Follow the [presentations] links for 2009 and 2010 to see the new layout.  Past conference pages from 2000 to 2008 will be converted in the weeks to come. All presentations since 2000 have now been preserved in pdf format to ensure future access to the files.

Thanks go out to the webteam for their hard work in making this possible.
