A large number of protocols are received each year for the last meeting.  Most of these are rushed and of poor quality. We kindly request that you take your time to formulate a well-written protocol and submit timeously to a meeting. For the November meeting, we may defer protocols to the next year should they be of especially poor quality and/or we receive too many protocols to review
