Welcome to fall! This issue of E-Cass contains its usual assortment of news items and updates. Timely - for those of us heading back to the lecture hall is Heather Theijsmeijer's informative article on Spotting Plagiarism. Does you brain need "re-wiring"? If so see Rob Thacker's recounting of experiences at the Banff Centre this past summer. Also, check out updates on ALMA , SKA as well Jim Hesser's report on IYA activities during this year. And - as always - a big thanks to the usual faithful contributors!
