> I am pleased to announce that the program for CANHEIT 2007 is online and 
> the website is now open for registration ... 
> http://canheit.uwaterloo.ca/
> The early registration fee is $350, now through April 30, and then $450 
> starting May 1.
> We had to impose a limit of 450 attendees because of the sizes of the 
> largest session room and one of the evening social events. That is 
> around a hundred greater than the number of attendees last year. 
> However, there is no Ontario Universities Computing Conference (OUCC) 
> when CANHEIT is in Ontario. In the hope of avoiding potential 
> oversubscription from the Ontario universities, we have asked Ontario's 
> CIOs/Directors to delay registrations from their institutions until 
> March 30, to give opportunity to the universities in the other 
> provinces.

The registration count is 179 as of 15:00 today. Thank you for your 
cooperation in holding back until now.

PS: We have been asked about the possibility of one-day registrations. If 
we believe we are not in danger of reaching the 450-capacity constraints, 
we will indeed add one-day registrations. However, we want to stay on the 
cautious side, so we are deferring the decision until May 1, after the 
early-registration period is over.
