Yesterday was the deadline for submitting presentation proposals for the TDI-ALDA 2013 Joint Conference.  And yesterday, at the last minute, we received several emails that basically said “I’m working on it.  Can you give me another day or two?”

 

Well, in hopes of accommodating everyone, we have decided to EXTEND THE DEADLINE FOR RECEIVING PRESENTATION PROPOSALS for the TDI-ALDA Joint Conference.  The new deadline is JUNE 1, 2013.  So hurry up and submit your great idea for a presentation at the October Joint Conference.
