    Thanks for plugging our short course. This is one of several that we’ll run this year in partnership with various groups. Follow OpenTopography (http://www.opentopography.org/) for updates on other courses that will be offered in the future.

    Note that you’ve got the wrong “NSF” logo up – our course is sponsored by the US National Science Foundation (http://www.nsf.gov/policies/logos.jsp) – the one above is a public health and safety certification organization (http://www.nsf.org/consumer-resources/look-for-the-nsf-mark). Thanks, -cc
