Many thanks to those of you who submitted papers and panel proposals with the GSCIS as either the first or second sponsor. Although our allotment was very small (tiny), Lisa and I have tried to expand it via requests for co-sponsorship with the larger sections. The Conference Co-Chairs are now in the process of putting together the preliminary program and members will be informed in due course about the status of their proposals. Meanwhile we are still in the process of finalizing our Innovative Panel which will take the form of a virtual conversation with persons in Africa, Asia and Latin America. We are still seeking a Middle East participant so if any of you know anyone who might be available, do let me know ASAP.
Thank you again,
