How to Access the Downloadable Files

Downloadable files are provided for each session that includes abstracts. These files are different from the files available through the link "Program with Abstracts" in that they contain the full program listing for a particular session, as well as all the files for the abstracts being presented in that session. These files will provide an easy way for participants to download and print out all the abstracts for a session.

Remember that the titles in the program listings of these files are NOT linked to the individual abstracts as they are in the "Program with Abstracts" version. These files are available via the LPI's anonymous FTP site. Instructions for accessing the site are provided below. The file names are shown to the right of each session (e.g., "full51.pdf"). If you have any questions regarding these files, please contact Linda Tanner at 281-486-2142 or

To access the LPI's FTP site, ftp to

    User Name:  anonymous
    Password:  your e-mail address

Change the directory to


and then retrieve the file(s) you are interested in (see listing below).

Note:  The files should be downloaded in BINARY mode.

If you prefer to download the files using your web browser, you can simply click on the file names, which are linked to the ftp site. A left click will launch the Acrobat Reader and pull up the file via your browser (this may take some time, depending on the size of the file), and you can then save the file on your machine for later printing or viewing. A right click will give you the option to save the file directly to your machine without first having to launch the Reader and open the file. (A right click on the Mac is accomplished by holding down the command key and then clicking.)
