Fellow vision scientists,

For some time, our long-time NASA colleague Al Ahumada has been making 
vague noises about retirement, but now we are starting to think that he 
might really do it.  And so we are planning an event to celebrate his 
long and illustrious career for the afternoon and evening of May 24th, 
2017, in St. Pete Beach, Florida, immediately following the annual 
meeting of the Vision Sciences Society.  The precise details are still 
being worked out, but we are envisioning an afternoon talk session and 
an evening group dinner, see below for a tentative schedule.  We have 
created a web site for the event: http://visionscience.com/alapalooza/, 
there's not much there now but we will be updating it with details as 
they become definite.

If you would like to give a talk, please contact the organizers. Talks 
can range from serious scientific presentations to brief anecdotes 
relating to Al and his work.

The talk session will be open to all, with no registration fee. Payment 
will be required for the evening dinner, we are still working on the 

If you think you may attend, please fill out the following short 
questionnaire at the end of this message, and return by email to 
jeff.mulligan at nasa.gov. It will be a big help to have a rough 
participant count.

With apologies to those who have already responded to the first notice 
in November,

Jeff Mulligan and Beau Watson
