Invited Talks
An invited talk discusses a topic of general interest to attendees. Unlike a refereed paper, this topic need not be new or unique but should be timely and relevant or perhaps entertaining. An ideal invited talk is approachable and possibly controversial. The material should be understandable by beginners, but the conclusions may be disagreed with by experts. Invited talks should be 45–60 minutes long, and speakers should plan to take 30–45 minutes of questions from the audience.

Invited talk proposals should be accompanied by an abstract describing the content of the talk. You can also propose a panel discussion topic. It is most helpful to us if you suggest potential panelists. Proposals of a business development or marketing nature are not appropriate. Speakers must submit their own proposals; third-party submissions, even if authorized, will be rejected.

Please email your proposal to Invited talk proposals are due May 10, 2005. All abstract submissions must be electronic, in ASCII or PDF format only. ASCII format is greatly preferred.
