The Lake Arrowhead workshops were held from the early 1980's to 2004. Each year, a group of technologists were invited to discuss topics of contemporary interest in magnetic recording and information storage in an open, interactive workshop setting. Unlike most conferences, formal presentations were de-emphasized, and free interactive discussion was encouraged. Attendees were enthusiastic about the value of the workshop. Prepared papers were not necessary, and were in fact discouraged. The talks ended with a foil listing problems and new work required. The workshop motto was, "Let no foil go unchallenged."
