Dear air-l members:
this is a reminder that the deadline for submissions to the fifth GOR 
conference is at the end of this month.
Because GOR and AoIR overlap in scope you might be intrested in 
contributing to both conferences. GOR will be October 10 and 11 
(Thursday and Friday), AoIR will start Sunday.
There will be a reduction in registration fees for people who attend 
both conferences.
Best wishes from Zurich,
