Proposing Sessions for July 19
We are asking for your best ideas for sessions on Thursday, July 19.
Anything goes in terms of topics - just be prepared to lead a discussion
rather than give a presentation (no LCDs are allowed in the breakout
rooms!).  We expect this structure to lead to greater interaction among
meeting attendees. There has been a lot of interest in offering
sessions, many of which are not yet recorded on the wiki.  We are
departing from past meeting structure to allow for more partner input
into the meeting.  The attached Call for Sessions document outlines how
the day will run, what to expect and how you propose a session for the
program.  We think this structure will give meeting attendees access to
ideas and issues that they care most about.  Visit the ESIP Federation
<http://wiki.esipfed.org/index.php/Session_Topics_Proposal_Page> wiki to
keep informed about what is being proposed or to propose a session
yourself.  Feel free to sign up for any sessions that interest you.
Deadline for proposing a session is June 1.
Please feel free to direct any questions to my attention or to Karl
Benedict (kbene at edac.unm.ed, Technical Workshops) or Bruce Caron
(bruce at tnms.org, Open Meeting Questions).  I look forward to seeing you
in Madison.
