Subject: southeastcon 98 To: firstname.lastname@example.org Update on SoutheastCon '98 - Parveen Wahid We have received 110 papers in 16 different areas. The review process is now underway. We received 12 proposals for tutorials - of this we selected 10. All tutorials will be held over Friday at the UCF campus. Rooms have been reserved in the student union for this. Letter to various exhibitors have been mailed out. The hardware competition is coming along OK. I think we are a little behind here but plan to get things speeded up this week. Need to advertise our web site competition - currently this is being done. IEEE USA sent information on their needs! Will try to do our best to provide what they need. I will coordiante this with either Dale Caston or Jim Beall. Sundaram will work with Jim Beall to coordinate Region 3 activities for the conference. Will get in touch with Pat Donohoe and Joey to get details of the student paper contest done. The registration form is ready - simplified a good deal from previous ones. This form, hotel info, info on tutorials and sessions will be mailed out by the end of next week. registration deadline is March 6 since we have quite a few overseas papers and interest in attending. This deadline gives us space to extend (internally) by a few days and enough time for the proceedings publication.
