There is no formal procedure for submitting proposals for invited sessions at the Pacific Division. However, the program committee welcomes suggestions for invited sessions. Suggestions should be emailed to the program chair,

These may be as simple as a brief statement of a topic for a session or may contain specific suggestions for speakers and commentators.

The program committee takes suggestions as suggestions. There is no formal vetting procedure. Those who make suggestions should understand that not all suggestions will be followed up and that the program committee may decide to develop a suggestion in substantially altered form. In all cases, the committee, not the person making the suggestion, will handle program organization.

The types of invited sessions are:

  1. Invited Symposia: at least two speakers and normally some commentators.
  2. Invited Papers: two hours, with one speaker and two commentators.
  3. Book Symposia: two or more speakers in addition to the author(s) responding.

Suggestions are more likely to be followed up if made by July 1. The invited program is set by September 1.
