The call for papers for this year's ASIS&T!

Time for us to start thinking about options for next year. A panel, or we 
might consider speaking to SIG-CR and/or SIG-KM about options for joint 
work, or possibly some connection to a pre-or post-conference session? In 
the meantime, I wish you all happy holidays!
