RE: San Antonio Meeting Technical Program Planning

As you probably know, the deadline for the receipt of the San Antonio Meeting Abstracts is January 2, 2004. The complete listings of all meeting abstracts received to date have been posted on the Web Site at http://abstract.electrochem.org/products/205/organizers/ and will be updated every day. To access the page enter your username in lower case letters (first initial and last name, e.g.. ebrennfleck) and password in lower case letters (symposium code letter and number, e.g. a1).  Please note the username has no spaces or hyphens.  For those who are organizing more than one session, use the symposium code that comes first alphabetically.  


If you receive any original copies of Meeting Abstracts, please check the special Organizerís Page listed above to see if the abstract has been received by ECS.  If the abstract does not appear on the list or in the author index, please forward it to us immediately, so that it may be included in the final listing of papers for your symposium schedule. The week of January 5, all Symposium Organizers will be sent an email reminder that all the Meeting Abstracts that have been received in the correct format for consideration in your symposium, as well as the tentative room/date schedule for your symposium.  Please make sure that all abstracts that will be included in your symposium schedule are in the database BY JANUARY 5.

Your completed schedule will be due to ECS by January 16, 2004.  The program schedule will be final by January 20, 2004.  No further changes will be accepted to the program after this date.  We appreciate your assistance in adhering to the deadline dates outlined in this letter so we can meet the Interface publication deadline for the printed program.


For those of you planning proceedings volumes, to be available at the meeting, please remember that the volume materials are due to the Publications office no later than February 1, 2004. Please also remember that beginning with the San Antonio meeting, proceedings volumes must have the no fewer than 30 papers. The requirement that a volume also contain no less than 80% of all presentations (oral and poster) has not changed.


Please contact Erin Goodwin or myself if you have any questions about the entire process.  Thank you in advance for your assistance in making the 205th Meeting of the ECS a great success.
