More photos from the workshops or of workshop swag (t-shirts, mugs, ...) are always welcome.

Mike Alexander asked me (Jeff Ogden) if I knew of a list of dates and locations of the MTS Workshops. I didn't. Mike remembers a mug that listed the workshops up to some point, but we don't have one and aren't sure what year it was from. The cover of the proceedings for Workshop XVI held in Durham in 1990 lists all of the workshops held through 1990.

Mike pulled together an initial list, I was able to add a few more entries, and Don Boettner consulted his archives to fill in 1993@SFU, confirm that there were no workshops in 1977 or 1991, and that the workshop scheduled for 1995 never took place. Don thought the 1995 workshop was to have been at WSU, but Mike has some e-mail saying it was to have been at UQV.
