RSA2008 Conference Program Ready for Review

I'm pleased to announce that a complete draft of the program for our Seattle Conference is now ready for your inspection.

If you click here , you will be transported to the program schedule. Consult the index to find your session, or scroll through the entire program—as you wish. You will be impressed and excited, I'm sure, by the prospects in store for us in Seattle.

This draft will permit you to plan your activities in Seattle. (If you notice an error, please email our conference assistant, Michelle Smith, at A few notes:

· I have made a few changes in the schedule since I sent the previous announcement. Do check to confirm the time when your presentation has been scheduled.

· I have changed or shortened some titles in the interest of conserving space. I will also be assigning meeting rooms at a later time.

· Note well that the typical session includes four or five papers for a 90-minute period, not three papers in 75 minutes. Adjust accordingly: You should expect typical panel presentations to last 12-15 minutes, not 20 minutes. (There are many exceptions—you'll see a one-hour session, a 75-minute session, and so on.) Please plan your presentation to be respectful of time constraints for your whole group.

· There are still a few rooms available in our Westin Hotel room bloc.
