We are currently evaluating excellent submissions for Tutorials, Workshops,

are really excited about the program we see evolving.
Submissions have closed for Tutorials, Workshops, Panels, Presentations,
Advanced Topics and 10 Minute Talks, but theres still plenty of
time to submit Idea Market and Poster proposals. Given the success of
the French Track in Montreal, we are considering an Advanced Professionals
track for 2006. Look for more information shortly.
