Re: [xmca] Fwd: AERA 2013 Call for Proposals

If I could make an organizational suggestion... Perhaps putting together a symposium with a min of 3 papers, plus discussant and chair, with the option of going to a round table? 
Alternatively a single roundtable paper will need to be put together with several others by us (Carrie and I, program co-chairs) - and each paper will be subject to the scrutiny of the reviewers separately. Plus, we need to then assign a chair.
The symposium option allows you to put together what you want and, by selecting the roundtable option when you submit, allows us (SIG officers) to consider the broader SIG program and make decisions regarding symposia and roundtables. 

Content-wise, the focus could be more general, perhaps on Sylvia's work in general.
