Deadline Reminder for DMP Focus Topic Invited Speaker Nominations: August 15, 2014
Dear DMP Members:
For the 2015 March Meeting (San Antonio TX), DMP is the lead organization unit on 22 different Focus Topics (see list below).  A Focus Topic generally consists of a series of sessions, each of which is typically seeded with one invited talk, the remainder of the session being composed of contributed presentations.
DMP members are encouraged to make suggestions for invited speakers for these Focus Topics via the web.
Your nomination will go to the organizers of the Focus Topic for which you have suggested a candidate and will aid the organizers in their selection of invited speakers.
In suggesting speakers please keep in mind that speakers who gave an invited talk at the previous March Meeting are ineligible.
(2014 March Meeting invited speakers:
Thank you in advance for your help in making the March Meeting a success.
