JCDL: Papers due Feb 1 5pm EST
Demos 8
Posters 15
Peter will be in Hawaii at that time, so time difference will be less than for the East Coast people.

Time difference between EST and conference time is 15 hours.

Focus groups. Subject populations. Some concerns at TAMU about IRB. Steve will follow up on that. Boots and Greg have a list of possible participants in a first focus group. More to follow.

Lois: options for display of controlled vocabulary.
Peter: searching of ontology as well as the display.
Form a subgroup of PIs and students who are interested in the display and use of vocabularies.
There is a small group working on this, add new VU students and Peter.
