A note on paper length

Generally speaking I budgeted 30 minutes per talk session.  So a 20 minute talk will allow about 8 minutes for questions, with 2 minutes transition time. If you want to talk a great deal and do not require a response, you can talk for 28 minutes; if you want feedback (the correct choice), you should limit yourself to about 18 minutes.

Conference activities will take place in Allen Hall on the University of Oregon Eugene campus.
