PCA/ACA in SA, April 2011

Thanks for stopping by and giving me homework!

For an explanation of what this is all about, read my PCA/ACA homework blog post. Then scroll on down this list and start assigning me panels!

Below, I’ve listed all the time slots I’m undecided on. You’ll notice not every time is listed — some times have panels I simply have to attend (including the one I’m reading in), which knocks out other options. But every time slot that offers more than one choice appears below, and beside each list of possible panels is a poll. Vote for the option you would most like me to attend, and I’ll do my best to get there!

A couple of notes:

  • Can’t tell which panel you’d prefer? No worries! For each time slot, I’ve listed the options above the poll. Each option is linked to the online description of the panel, complete with presenter names and paper abstracts. (In some cases, I’ve added a quick summary of my own, just to make things easier, but check out the links anyway. There are some awesome papers slated this year.)
  • And you aren’t limited to my shortlist. Each poll includes an “Other” blank; you can vote for that one and fill in an option I haven’t listed. To find out what other options are available on the program, go to the online schedule and filter for that time slot, then just copy and paste the panel title into the blank. (And yes, Mom, “Come back home to visit the family” is an acceptable write-in option.)
  • Also, I might not make it to all the top picks. Between now and then, something might come up that dictates I attend a different panel, or that I skip that time altogether (you’ll notice, for example, that I currently have no time at all for lunch–or the usually awesome bookfair–on any of the main conference days, and I’ll need to eat and browse the bookfair at some point). But in general, I’m going to try to stick to everyone’s recommendations. I just wanted to give a heads-up in case I missed your pick.
  • Have any other comments or requests? By all means, leave me a comment! I’d love your feedback!
