If you would like to propose a panel of 4 speakers each,

sent to you upon acceptance of your presentation.
Acceptance of your paper obligates you to present the paper
at the conference. Multiple submissions to different areas are
not allowed. You must also be present at the conference to read
your own paper—no "readings by proxy" are allowed.
You are highly encouraged to enhance your presentation
through audio-visuals. Each conference room will be equipped
with a DVD player and monitor. No other equipment is available.
Please know that specially produced or "burnt" DVDs may prove to
be incompatible in format with the provided DVD players. However,
we hope to have TVs with VGA input and cables, so please
feel free to bring your laptop computer.
If you have specific days and times at which you would like to present, please let me know at the time of submission. I will forward your request to the schedulers. Please be aware that not all requests can be honored.
