Perhaps they will - that would be useful.  Someone needs to educate their 
editorial board on ways to appear to be something other than a "phony 
conference".  Everything about the rhetoric of the message indicates that 
such is the case.

On the other hand, if it is a fraudulent piece of what i call "conference 
spam", I don't want them to know how to do any better.
