Thank you for attending VLA 2015 in Richmond! Looking for files from our shared Dropbox? We are very sorry, we have just discovered that someone deleted all of our files and folders on October 29. We are working with Dropbox to recover them. In the meantime, please email Lisa Varga and she will see what she can do to get you the files you need. We expect to be able to post all of our official photographs in the next couple of weeks.
