Roundtable discussions allow maximum interaction with the presenters by eliminating the formal didactic presentation. There will be opportunity for discussion on Wednesday evening, concurrent with the Contributed Poster Session. Individual presenters are assigned tables in a meeting room where interested persons may gather for discussion with the presenter about his or her paper or project. This format is particularly appropriate for papers addressing topics best pursued through extensive discussion. Authors are encouraged to bring copies of the full paper or summaries and to remain available for discussion throughout the session.
Any PERC attendee is welcome to lead a Roundtable Discussion. To volunteer, please contact the co-organizers by July 8, 2003 with a title and abstract.
