III NuMI Off-Axis Experiment
Detector Workshop

July 10-12, 2003
Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory

Workshop will take place in ... It will be decided at the very last moment. The default meeting room is Wilson Hall, 1 West, except for Friday last session (after coffee break) which will take place in Wilson Hall Curia II.

If the contractors come through with their promisses we will meet in a brand new meeting room, Wilson Hall 8th floor cross over. In such a case a message will be posted in 1 West..
