Food for Thought Dinners

This is an opportunity for attendees of the 2011 TLT Symposium to get together the evening before for an informal discussion of topics of their choice. Each location will have its own topic, but feel free to stray or suggest your own. This is more of a social event for networking.

Each topic group is responsible for self-organizing, choosing a location and time, and posting ideas on this wiki page. There is no formal process for this!

Dinner costs are on your own.
