Monday, May 7, 2012, 5:00 - 8:30

Be sure to join your friends and colleagues on Monday night for a fun-filled evening of GREAT FOOD, ADULT BEVERAGES, and AWESOME ENTERTAINMENT!

The casual buffet dinner and drinks in the tent will be followed by the first-ever APS/CNM/EMC Red Carpet “Usies” Awards with desserts in the 402 auditorium. The Big Eddy Springs Blues Band (with Argonne’s own George Joch aka “Big Eddy” as the leader supported by Charles Pelkie aka Sweet Charlie, Frank Glorioso aka Hot Sticks, and George Lales aka Niles Delta) will entertain the guests between screenings of the award-winning videos.

Before the awards, both awardees and spectators will get to walk the “red carpet” and be interviewed on live video!

So, what are the “Usies Awards?” They are short (2-minute maximum) videos created by users to document the good, the bad, and the funny parts of the Argonne user experience. (Submission instructions)

Don’t miss this chance to be part of the action and enjoy your colleagues’ film adventures!


Tuesday, May 8: 4:40 - 7:00

Poster Session and Reception at the Theory and Computing Sciences Building (TCS), Bldg. 240. Shuttle service will be provided.
