We'd appreciate your limiting conference announcements to 150 lines, so that we can post more than 1 per issue. Please consider omitting information useful only to attendees, such as information on housing, transportation, or rooms and times of sessions. Please do not use abbreviations or acronyms for your conference unless you explain them in your text. Many people outside your area of specialization will not recognize them. Thank you for your cooperation.

year. Additionally, because many hotels were already heavily booked for
the weekend of our conference, they were unable to offer us a discounted

is much shorter than last year, but we can also suggest some nice
alternatives:
