Presentations at the Asia Regional Meeting

Beijing, China, 13-16 May 2005

These are the presentations made at the Asian Regional Meeting, chiefly PowerPoints (PPT) with a few PDFs. Some of them are extraordinarily large, and the file sizes are shown following each title. Because of the large amount of server space they occupy, they will remain available here until the end of August 2005 and then be removed.

(Note: The Presentations have been removed from the site, August 2006.)
