Now that I've actually placed the second round proposals into the schedule,
it looks like I could fit another round-table slot into 3:30 - 4:30 on
Thursday, just before the reception in the exhibit area. It would run up
against 2 labs however. Let me know what you think. Is it worth it to have a
second partial slot for round-tables? [Please make sure to read my first
message below if you haven't already done this. Otherwise, you won't know
what I'm talking about - I'm waiting for the smart replies to this
