Hi All:

I was about to start contacting my friends and acquaintances individually to urge them to submit a paper proposal or, better, put together a panel, but I realized that I don’t know who has already submitted a proposal. Would whoever has that information please circulate a list of the names of people who have submitted proposals and the titles of their papers or panels? I am anxious to begin soliciting(!)

Thanks kindly,
