Sherra Kerns from Olin College will be unable to give her tutorial on Revisiting Engineering Education because of health concerns and her colleague Mark Somerville will take her place. Carl Mitcham will give his keynote talk on Wednesday (instead of Tuesday) and Deborah Johnson will give hers on Tuesday instead of Wednesday.
