I know that the timing of this meeting conflicts with a meeting of grad students in the Philosophy Department. The meeting is primarily to figure out the logistical issues of setting up a new organization. After the meeting, we will contact everyone who has expressed interest to set up convenient times for our regular meetings. If you are unable to attend the meeting on the 18th but have ideas about the administrative aspects of HLTF, please contact me.
