Humphrey, all,

Since the topic interests me I took the opportunity when doing some 
background research on presenters to post a hyperlinked version of the 
provisional program at http://donosborn.org/blog/?p=488

Are there any links between this effort and the biennial Language and 
Development conferences? Next one in their series would be in 2017. See 
http://www.langdevconferences.org/index.html
