CONNECTION INFORMATION: (NOTE new telephone passcode)

With a Polycom....RSVP to Estelle Dodson (kdodson at mail.arc.nasa.gov) and connect to WebEx as instructed below. If you need Polycom help during the live event, call the videoconferencing help-desk at (650) 604-6412

The slides from the seminar can be accessed real-time using WebEx at:


Enter the meeting number:  922 024 444
Hit the "join now" button.
Enter your name or site name (this is not an assigned log-in name, please use your institution name or your first and last name), email and the password: 1K*Falcon  (case sensitive)

If you've never joined a WebEx meeting before, please allow an extra 5-10 minutes to install the plug-in.

Without a Polycom...There are two ways to participate:

1) You can listen to the seminar on the telephone while viewing the slides in WebEx (see WebEx instructions above). The NASA conference phone number for this is (877) 891-6023, passcode 2031704.

2)  You can watch the Realplayer webcast at: http://vanseg-1.arc.nasa.gov/2006/AB060728-01.ram and view the slides in WebEx (see WebEx instructions above)  There is a 30 second delay for the webcast, so you will need to control the slides manually using the arrow buttons in WebEx.  Questions for the speaker can be posted in the WebEx chat area to be answered at the end of the talk.  Do not try to watch the Realplayer webcast at the same time as the Polycom or the phone.  Due to the delay in the webcast, it will sound awful, unless you like dissonance.

Please forward this information to your colleagues and departments. Attendance is open to all.  Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

"See" you there,
