Copies of abstracts, presentations, and papers will be placed in this section as they become available.
Note: Formal papers are desired, but are not required. To make a presentation, we must receive an abstract and a copy of the actual presentation slides. Documents which have been received and are available are shown in underlined blue text. They may be accessed by clicking on them.
Note: Abstracts are to be submitted on or before March 19, 2013. If your Abstract is submitted after that date, there is a god chance there will not be room in the Program for your presentation. The Abstract Review Committee will meet in early April to finalize the organization of each Technical Session. We will choose the best three Abstracts for each session.
Presentations are to be submitted on or before May 10, 2013. We are serious about this date. We need time to review each Presentation and then the author(s) need time to correct their Presentations. We DO NOT want to be receiving Presentations at the last minute. This isn't fair to the Workshop Committee and it isn't fair to the author(s).
