Call for all other types of Sessions

Other types of sessions
: It is not the intent of the Program Committee to limit creativity. Feel free to make inquiries to the Program Chair if you have an idea for a session that will enhance the meeting, but does not exactly fit the descriptions of workshops or discussions. Be aware, however, that demand for sessions outside of the formal program has been growing, and that every worthy or interesting proposal cannot necessarily be accepted. As with discussions, events that run concurrently with the formal program will be allowed only in exceptional cases.

Workshop and evening session/discussion proposals must be received by the Program Chair before 1 December 2002 by the Program Chair via the ESA web site (links from ). In extraordinary circumstances in which you do not have access to the Web, proposals may also be e-mailed to the address given below. Please check with the Program Chair before following this route. Instructions for the submission of Posters and Oral Presentations are given above. Please do not use the Poster and Oral Presentation web site for submission of workshop and discussion proposals. If you submit your proposal on the web site submission form, you will be notified electronically concerning review and acceptance of your proposal, using the return e-mail address that you provide. If the return address is incorrect, you will not be notified. If you do not hear from the Program Chair or Meeting Organizer by 31 January 2003, please contact ESA@LTRR.ARIZONA.EDU to confirm that your proposal was received. The complete scientific program should be on the ESA and ISEM web sites by 1 May 2003, and each accepted proposal organizer or submitter should check for exact time and location of their workshops or discussion, as these are subject to change (and mistakes are sometimes made). Organizers are responsible for notifying all participants in their workshop, evening session, or discussion concerning the date, time, and place of the session.

Cancellation policy: Once a workshop or evening session/discussion has been accepted and listed in the Preliminary Program, it imposes a serious burden to cancel it. Do not submit a proposal if you are uncertain that you will be able to fulfill your obligation to organize and conduct the session.
