So without further delay, here's the actual announcement.
AeSIAA has received a proposal to organize a one day workshop that
would explain the theory of ornithopters, bird flight, control systems
and also feature hands-on session under the guidance of Nathan
Chronister. Nathan Chronister is CEO of the Ornithopter Zone. Nathan
Chronister has 20 years of experience in ornithopter research, and the
company he founded provides model kits and supplies for students and
hobbyists and conducts training sessions all over the world.
