We have extended the deadline to October 1st.  I can assure you that you won't have a Thursday presentation.  I look forward to seeing your proposal.

Steve, Your message below says that today is the deadline for submission,
but the web site says October 1.  Which is correct?  Also, I cannot be
there the Thursday of the conference (Nov. 6).  Should I submit a paper
which is accepted, is there a mechanism to ensure that I'm not set for a
Thursday presentation?  Thanks, Paul
