AMTA Conference Diary Entry March 1, 2012

In Like A Lion!
Thursday, 1 March, 2012

Days before Call for Papers Deadline (March 1, 2012): 0, that is ZERO! –
Today is it! D-Day!

Days before the Conference: 225 days. (or 5,376 hours or 322,560 minutes)

Wow! Can’t believe how many great proposals we have received already –
both for Concurrent Sessions and CMTEs! And I am guessing that there are
still a fair number of people who will be submitting today – those who
like to live on the edge, drink milk after the expiration date, and wait
until the last possible minute for everything.

Talked to the good folks in the national office and, despite all my
pleading to the contrary, they nixed the idea of any extension for our
paper submissions. Sheesh! Well, that may just add to the thrill for those
still working on their submissions for no later than midnight tonight.
Okay, people, get those proposals in; I’m ready for you!

I bet we’ve received so many proposals already because by now everyone has
heard the word about the great details for our site and our conference; if
not, there’s no time like the present to check out our website
