> *Gary An informally agreed to do it for biomedicine;
> *I would like to do it for ecology (if that's not too self-serving);
> *Perhaps Steve Lansing (anthropologist; partly because he's one of the
> few SFI faculty actively interested in ABM);
> *Perhaps an economist like Leah Tesfatsion
> *Other suggestions please!

> 2. Registration and abstract submittal: We need to get people

> The deadline for abstract submittal is later than the registration
> deadline, but we can promise people to approve their submittal before
> May 20 if they request (if they need approval before registering and
> making travel plans).
> 3. Classes: Which classes are when should be settled out soon. Mike
> North and Bill Rand should be reporting in soon with the results of
> their negotiation over when Repast and NetLogo classes are. Paul

> think that should be on Sunday.
> 4. Overall schedule: Greg, are you making a schedule with everything
> it, or should I start one? Maybe we should just put it on your
> conference web site.
