Mar 7: 143 workshops are closed.
Feb 14:
126 workshops are closed.
Jan 21:
18 workshops have reached capacity and are closed.

It may seem that 143 workshops closed is a great number. But, actually, it is not. There are 310 workshop offered
at Congress, and the following list indicates which workshops are closed to further registration. However, also listed here
is whether the workshop is recorded. A good Congress strategy is choosing sessions that are not recorded, and that
allows your the option of hearing at a later time those sessions that were recorded. You can find ordering information
of Audio CDs and MP3s on our Recordings Page.
