Hi Fred et al.,

Thanks to so many of you who have already responded. They have helped
us with our decisions. The following will require some further
responses. 

1. We will move the entire Advanced Study Institute and Workshop to
South Africa. The venue is still to be determined, but the dates
remain unchanged and we expect to fly people into Johannisberg and
take them by van to a site near and/or in Kruger National Park. If you
are unable or for some reason unwilling to participate as a result,
please let us know as soon as possible. Send email to
rkriegner at yahoo.com, spassion at dimacs.rutgers.edu,
gfiorini at dimacs.rutgers.edu, froberts at dimacs.rutgers.edu .

2. We also expect to hold a follow-up program at KWS Camp in Kenya
starting January 10. We are not yet sure what that program will be. It
might be mostly for those who are unable to go to South
Africa. Priority would most likely be given to those for whom going to
South Africa now would not work out. It might be that we will invite
some people to return. We still have to work out the details and will
keep you informed. 

3. We realize that some of you had personal trips planned for Kenya or
elsewhere either before or after the ASI and Workshop. We will try to
take those into account in our rebooking for your flights.

4. The flight rebooking will need to be done as soon as possible. The
"default" is to change your ticket to go into and out of
Johannisberg on the same dates as you were planning to go into and
out of Nairobi. Please let us know if this is ok. Please email
rkriegner at yahoo.com, spassion at dimacs.rutgers.edu,
gfiorini at dimacs.rutgers.edu, froberts at dimacs.rutgers.edu and it is
very important to make sure that Dick Kriegner, who will be doing the
rebooking, hears from you.

5. If you would like your ticket to be rebooked so it goes into
Johannisberg and returns from Nairobi or vice versa, or if you would
like to have the dates of your travel changed, you need to like us
know as soon as possible. Please email rkriegner at yahoo.com,
spassion at dimacs.rutgers.edu, gfiorini at dimacs.rutgers.edu,
froberts at dimacs.rutgers.edu . 

6. I don't know how much extra the itineraries that include Kenya will
be as opposed to straight tickets to South Africa and back. We will
need to see what the extra cost is and whether we are allowed to
reimburse for the extra cost. We are very sorry if some of you will
incur extra expenses as a result, but hope you understand the need for
us to have made this change.

Things will come together and we will keep you informed. Please do
check your email regularly and please don't hesitate to contact me if
you have concerns or questions.

Fred
