Panel Abstract:
The magic date of January 1, 2000 is nearly upon us and no one is really sure what (if anything) is going to happen as a result of the Y2K bug. This panel session brings together several panelists with extensive experience in various aspects of Y2K remediation who will speak about their own specific work as well as offer their perspective on broader issues. We hope to have a lively and enjoyable discussion with lots of audience participation.
