Dear all

you will by now have seen the call for papers for the IR v4 conference
'Broadening the Band' in Toronto, 2003.

As Program chair, I wish to invite members of the Air-list to nominate to
act as reviewers of proposals. 

A reviewer will need to reviewer a number of 700-word abstracts, provide
basic feedback, according to set criteria. A reviewer will also provide
assistance to the sub-chairs responsible for groups of papers in finalising
their recommendations for inclusion in the program. This work will need to
be done in March. There is an interactive website that will be used for
managing the review process (the other side of the conference submission
website :) ).

I expect that, with a longer abstract, we will actually make the job a
little easier (if slightly more time), because there will be more substance
on which to choose for or against a paper.

I note that, in particular, we will need some reviewers fluent in French;
and we will need reviewers for creative/aesthetic presentations as well as
more traditional scholarly papers.

Reviewers will shortly be able to join a specialised mailing list aircon
through which all review/program business will be conducted.

To this end, please reply to me directly
m.allen at curtin.edu.au
using the subject line

Best wishes
