Submission deadline extended
This evening I set off methodically to put up some more submissions to the forthcoming Congress. What a nightmare the form is to fill in. Perhaps it works better in the German version...
Time was dragging, getting tired and a little cross did not help. Really, though, people ought to have their explanatory materials not just checked but written from the outset by native-speakers.
My mood was not enhanced when I saw that WC8's site was still translating my materials into gobbledegook. Still, I followed my resolve and just ignored this.
Then like the US Cavalry coming over the hill, a not unexpected email arrived –
Extension abstract submission deadline
Dear Sir or Madam,
Dear CE community,
This is to inform you that the deadline for abstract submission in the context of the 8th World Congress on Conductive Education, taking place in Munich and Fürstenfeldbruck from October 9 to 12, 2013, has been extended until Sunday, May 5, 2013 (24:00 CET).
Online abstract submission is possible via the congress website.
The deadline for early bird registration will be on Friday, May 31, 2013.
Don't miss the opportunity to present your scientific research results and your conductive education experiences to an international and highly motivated audience.
For any further questions please contact the WCCE scientific secretariat by e-mail (email@example.com) or phone (+49 351-48 42 964).
The Organizing Committee looks forward to welcoming you in Munich and Fürstenfeldbruck in October.
So it goes. I think that I recall something similar before the Hong Kong Congress. Why do such things happen? Who knows, who cares? Sufficient unto the day the evil thereof. I am off to my slumbers.
Meanwhile, in another part of the forest
Susie Mallett has been beavering away mentoring submissions like there were no tomorrow:
Well, for her, and for me and for quite a few others too I guess, tomorrow has been postponed, till Saturday.
Meanwhile, my two submissions, put up an hour or two back, have been numbered 135 and 138...
