Complaints that you can solve.

The biggest two complaints that we receive is that:

  1. section coordinator has neither accepted nor rejected my paper and/or
  2. the section coordinator has not told me the time or day of my presentation. Please respond to the members of your section so that we do not have to.

Another complaint that we get is that individuals need to make their travel plans and reservations for the hotel but have not heard from the section coordinators. This is why we are publishing the program as early as is reasonably to be expected. The deadlines we have above are as absolute as we can make them. We fully understand you're volunteers and we really appreciate all of your efforts. Without you we could not make this conference run; however, we need you to respond as quickly as possible to members of your sections and to the program coordinator.

Here's to a successful conference.
