(Michael: several items here particularly concern NAACSOS. If there are 
other NAACSOS people who should be on the SwarmFest email list, just 
tell us their name & email.)

You can delete Ropella and Johnson.
Add Scott Christley if you want; Pietro Terna (University of Torino; 
address@hidden); and Michael North (Argonne National Laboratory;

I circulated a draft yesterday; will finish it up tomorrow after anyone 
submits comments.

I suggest we skip the member/non-member distinction and just go with 
student, academic, and other categories.

In fact, should we just adopt the same schedule as NAACSOS to eliminate 
any concerns about people paying for the cheaper conference and 
attending the other? Then allow anyone who paid for either conference to 
attend both?

  Student: $100.00
  Faculty: $200.00
  Industry/Government: $300.00

This might give an incentive for a few people to pay for SwarmFest 
instead of NAACSOS's membership fee. But we won't even be doing 
registration for SwarmFest until after the 1st day of NAACSOS so they 
can do any policing they want.
