We will have our traditional semi-annual WeBWorK get-together on the Terrace of the University of Wisconsin Memorial Student Union Friday evening, August 1, 2008 from 5:30pm until 7:30+...

The WeBWorK "Symposium", where we gather to eat, drink and discuss WeBWorK, is open to all. WeBWorK users, the WeBWorK curious and all friends are welcome. We will post this message on the message board at Mathfest along with any changes if necessary. If you wish a guide to the Student union someone will leave from the registration desk in the lobby of the Concourse Hotel at 5pm Friday.
