Harvard/NSF voting symposium

I will be attending an all-day symposium at the JFK school next week.
The truth is, I don't know all that much about what will be discussed
or who will be there. I received an invitation, but I'm not sure if
that's because of my conversation with Mercuri or because of my name
appearing on various OVC materials and other articles. I had spoken
with Fred McLain, and he also hoped to attend (much farther for him to
travel), but I haven't managed to contact him lately to confirm this
(anyone know if he's incommunicado, and for how long?)

Anyway, I attach pretty much what I know: the Agenda. I'm sure it will
be interesting, and I'm sure some very smart folks will be there,
whatever the details.

For this list, I'm curious about OVC's opinion on any topics I should
try to raise. Any printed materials y'all think I should bring? Any
specific OVC issues I should focus on? That sort of thing. Obviously,
I know the lay of the land, and much will depend on what other people
say and present... but it can't hurt to get the sense of this list.
