Would Dr. Poris pretty please post her Powerpoint slides here? I'd very much like to share her presentation with my colleagues. Also: any chance someone recorded Stephen Abram's brilliant lecture?

You can see Stephen's notes here: Dr. Poris's slides contained proprietary material, so she isn't posting them, but we're trying to get something that we can share.

Michelle Poris' slides are now available.
