Hi all,

While I'd like to thank the reviewers for their positive comments and useful suggestions, I need to correct an impression of one reviewer who believed that giving the names of roundtable participants was a breach of anonymity guidelines, and who named two of the panel participants saying they "should have known better".

While a prepared paper should stand or fall on its own merits, and should therefore be anonymous, the success or failure of a roundtable discussion depends on the participants having the knowledge and experience to respond to issues raised by the audience. Knowing the participants in a round table is essential in judging its potential, and their details were requested in the guidelines. 

No-one, including the individuals named by the reviewer, did anything improper in this submission.
