Fellow RADSAFERers:

The Penn State EHS web site is still down but should be up soon. There are
still speaking slots available on the agenda so if you want to share some
of your experiences, lessons learned, or the status of current projects
please contact me (jal62 at psu.edu).

The registration web page for the 2016 PSU Roundtable is now open.
Unfortunately our PSU EHS web site is having problems so I’ve posted the
registration info below. I apologize for the length of this post but it’s
the only way to get the registration instructions out to you for now.

If you want a paper registration form please email me directly (
jal62 at psu.edu) and I will forward a pdf to you ASAP. Otherwise online
registration is now available.

Let me know if you have any questions and see you in September!

*Registration Policies*

Penn State Conferences will confirm your registration. You will be alerted
promptly of any cancellations or changes. If some unforeseen event forces
Penn State to cancel or postpone the program, you will receive a full
refund of your registration fee; however, the University cannot be held
responsible for any related costs, including cancellation fees assessed by
airlines or travel agencies. If your request to withdraw is received within
15 business days of the beginning of the program, we can issue a partial
refund. Send your written request by fax to 814-863-5190 or by email to
conferences at outreach.psu.edu. An administrative fee, up to $50, will be
charged for each withdrawal. Anyone who is registered but cannot attend may
identify a substitute. A full refund will be issued after the substitution
registration has been completed. A registration form and full payment by
the substitute are required. Substitutes are eligible to register at the
same fee. Penn State encourages persons with disabilities to participate in
its programs and activities. If you anticipate needing special
accommodations or have questions about the physical access provided, please
contact the conference planner at 814-863-5100 before your visit.
