We are very pleased and deeply relieved to report that we have heard from our HASTAC conference team in Orlando, Florida, and everyone is safe. They are working on coming back to normalcy, digging out (literally), returning to power and some kind of normalcy. And they want everyone at HASTAC to know that, although they won't be able to put up the conference program until they have power again, everything for the conference is proceeding. And they would like us to remind you about the importance of registering as early as possible for the conference.
You are heroes, dear HASTAC2017 friends!
from the September HASTAC Newsletter:
While the beginning of the academic year can feel like a force of nature, nothing compares to the real thing. To our colleagues and their families impacted by hurricanes, tornadoes, and earthquakes, our thoughts are with you. We know the after effects of these natural disasters could linger well into 2017, long after the academic year begins. As your lives slowly return to normal, we send our well wishes to you and your families, neighbors, colleagues, and students. Stay safe, everyone.
