Fermilab Lattice QCD


Please note: Secretary of Energy Samuel Wright Bodman will visit
Fermilab on Friday morning, April 7.  After a brief tour of the lab,
he will hold an All Hands' meeting in Ramsey Auditorium at 11:00 a.m.
Fermilab employees and visitors are invited to attend.  In order to
allow all interested participants to listen to Secretary Bodman's
presentation, the agenda has been revised.

All sessions are in Curia II (Wilson Hall, second floor, SW corner).

Breakfast, lunch, and coffee breaks are "on your own" in the Fermilab
