In conjunction with the current KITP Program on Fundamental Aspects of String Theory, we will be hosting the celebration of Stanley Mandelstam's 80th birthday onFriday, Feb. 13, 2009.  We have planned a lively day of talks from a variety of Stanley's students and colleagues, followed by a reception and dinner. There is no registration fee aside from the dinner cost, which will be around $40 per person, payable at the meeting (cash or check).
