    Thunderbird is nice, but Evolution also allows me to access my calendar on the Outlook Server.

    I’m switching.

    a very precise proposal requirement 

    On one of the mailing list that I manage, I just received an interesting call for panel speakers announcement from SIG/CON (Coterminous Operation of neo-Nodes).

    SIG-CON — Call for Panel Speakers

    ASIST Annual Meeting
    Tuesday, October 28th, 2008
    8:00 ? 9:00 pm
    Hyatt Regency Hotel, Columbus, Ohio
    United States of America
    Third Rock from the Sun
    25,000 Light Years from the Galactic Center

    SIG/CON is an award-winning Special Interest Group of the
    American Society for Information Science & Technology. The
    function of SIG/CON is to “explore the fundamental notions
    of information science, and expose them for what they are”
    (C.D. Batty, Remarks at SIG/CON, 1987).

    SIG/CON has been in the forefront of research across all
    areas of study, although the group is perhaps best known
    for advancing the theories of baloonean logic and titular
    colonicity. The roster of distinguished information
    scientists who have made public (with startling and
    refreshing lucidity) their research findings at SIG/CON
    represent the diversity of national and international
    institutions associated with this field.

    Further information on this important Special Interest
    Group can be found at:

    Speaker Proposals
    Proposals should reflect current research, or prospective
    research. Originality is important, but creative
    presentation styles are much more important. The proposal
    should be three pages in length, single spaced, 12 point
    Times New Roman font, with 0.75 inch margins, no footers or
    headers, and headings of 14 point, Arial Black. You may use
    blank pages in order to reach the three page required
    length. Two pages is unacceptable, as are four or five
    pages?the number is three.

    The proposal should address one of these Panel Session

    • Information Seeking Behavior Models of the Dead and


    • Taxonomies and Ontologies for non-Homo sapiens Species
    • Alternate-Reality Historical Analyses of Information


    • Frustration-Affective Relevance Feedback for Web 3.0 IR


    If you don?t like any of the themes listed above, please
    feel free to suggest one of your own.

    Proposal Due Date: Friday, 12th September 2008

    Notification of acceptance will occur at the whim of the
    session Chair?hopefully within a week, but you never know.
    Feel free to bug him if you don?t hear back in a reasonable
    amount of time. Potential speakers who annoy the Chair
    increase their chance of acceptance.

    Please email your proposal to:
    Michael Leach

    Faxed or snail-mailed proposals will not be accepted.
    Should you go ahead and send your proposal by any of these
    methods, my 9 year old daughter will turn them into origami

    Questions, comments, suggestions, complaints and other
    useless communications can be addressed to the same email
    addresses listed above.

    Final Note
    This is a real Call for Speakers, notwithstanding the
    content of this Call. If you?ve attended a SIG-CON session
    in the past, you have great understanding of the
    intricacies of this Universe in which we inhabit. If you
    have never attended a SIG-CON session, you have my
    sympathies?and I invite you to attend this year.

    Michael Leach
    Chair, SIG-CON
    Past President, ASIST
    Adjunct Faculty, Simmons College GSLIS
    Head of Collection Development, Cabot Science Library,
    Harvard University
