Not entirely sure on the logistics, but I expect we’ll post the submissions shortly after the workshop, at the latest. We’re still waiting for people to submit final versions that incorporate reviewers’ comments.


@Rikki – lol, I was of course refering to everything else I am gonna get to enjoy, like jacek’s poster on cognitive load and search tasks, and gene’s poster and fields talk, and barbara’s talk. all looks great. i hope there’s enough time to get round the posters!
