        The schedule looks great.  I noticed there is no poster session 
this year.  I know that there really weren't enough submissions to warrant 
one, though in previous years Swarmfest presenters have always been 
encouraged to bring a poster as well.  Part of me feels like poster 
sessions are much more interactive than oral presentations, on the other 
hand with such a small group maybe its not warranted.  Anyway just 
wondering if there were any thoughts on this?

Take care and see you all in about a week,
