>The final deadline for submission of abstracts is Nov. 1, 2007, but earlier inquiries and submissions will be welcomed. Final papers should be no longer than 20 minutes so that four papers can be read in a 1 � hour session. Details about visual projection equipment are not yet available, but most previous participants have either used photocopied handouts or their own laptop computers with standard powerpoints projected through television or other screens.
