It is not an easy job putting the
schedule together, and I sometimes wish the Prog Chair would ask some of
us for advice.
I'll remind ALL on the ARSC list who are paid members - and thus get to
vote in the upcoming election that the decision is yours. There were be
candidates for Second Vice President/Program Chair. in the ballots going out
next month. The winner of that office will be program chair for the 2014 and
2015 ARSC conferences. So it's up to you to exercise your vote and decide who
would make the better Program Chair. It is that person's job to plan and
schedule and accept (or reject) program papers. (I will remind you, of
course, that without concurrent sessions, there will be 40% less papers
presented. (and it they are 60 vs 35 minutes in length, there will be 65% less
papers than there were in 2012.
