There are benefits to having the paper deadline later. *However*, that would give reviewers only one week to review all of the papers, which could be a lot -- that is, we had intended to review all the papers to determine which papers would fit best in which of the two symposia. We could have a small group could do a preliminary skim of all submissions right away to determine which ones are candidates for TC4R, and review and discuss those first  then have later dates for review and discussion of the E2R papers.

Thoughts?

In any case, we will need to confirm availability of the small group (Chairs+ interested parties) for pretty much full-time the day or two after the paper submission deadline. (Right now it looks like I can make the time for either days in Sept. Not sure of others...)

Agree to add a milestone for paper reviews, and note to send reminders ahead of time. Done.

There was already some concern for having two symposia in two weeks (that it was too much of a burden on people's time), and I don't think we want to add a third one the week after... but good to have flexibility just in case I guess.
