In the meantime, we would welcome your comments and suggestions pertaining to the contents, design, or any other aspect of this website.
Retina Display support
Support for high-DPI screens such as Apple's Retina Displays is achieved by using retina.js.
We are experimenting with some traffic profiling, solely to satisfy our own academic curiosity, using Google Analytics. As a result, visitors who pay attention to this sort of thing may notice small PHP scripts being run on some pages. We will try to keep things inobtrusive.

Many of the graphics that MDD uses around the site are based on source images made available by their creators under Creative Commons licenses. In appreciation and compliance, we'd like to acknowledge our sources. We license and make available on this page our derivative works where possible, although we do not allow the reuse of any SIGMEDD-related imagery without prior approval.
