Woohoo!!!

I wish I knew that last week when filing a grant progress report.  ;-)

But seriously Kei, that's wonderful news.

To jump on the momentum bandwagon, on Don's request, I've distilled  
the Banff presentations and written a SfN abstract (due this Thu)  
combining that as best I could with a summary of what Matthias & Don  
had written already.

SfN abstract limits are measured in characters (2300 chars - minus  
white space) - but including title, abstract, authors, and address.   
This current summary at the top of the Google Doc we'd been nurturing  
through last week (http://docs.google.com/Doc?id=dgk2mvhp_0fmftbb) is  
now up to ~3800 chars without authors and addresses (NOTE: citations  
are not necessary, nor are they typical for SfN abstract submissions).

Right now, Don, Matthias, Alan, Susie, and I all have access rights  
to the doc.  Anyone wishing to participate, please don't hesitate to  
ask to be added to the list of collaborators.  All you need to do is  
pass on an active Google account email, and any one of us can add you  
as a collaborator.  If you don't want "write" access but only want to  
read what's there, you can be added as a 'viewer'.  They've also  
recently added the ability to add all the members of a mailing list  
as collaborators or viewers (up to 200 people - and only 10 can edit  
simultaneously - see http://docs.google.com/support/bin/answer.py? 
answer=66343&topic=8628)

Hopefully, this summary abstract can provide a final high-water mark  
from which over the next few days we can distill a trimmed abstract  
coming in under the wire.

To be honest, I think we have enough here for 2 SfN submissions - but  
I'm not certain yet how to split it - or whether we should just trim  
it to one.  We'd also need a second SfN member/sponsor to be first  
author beyond what Don has committed to do for this abstract.  I'm  
committed on another abstract, and you can only be "presenting"/first  
author on one abstract.  "Presenting"/first authors must be SfN full  
or student members.

We should also give some thought as to which sessions we'd want to  
submit to, and whether we'd want to request to give a talk or a  
poster.  The typical thing when you have >1 submission on a related  
research effort is to have one of each.

Congratulations again to all - both on the successful Banff demo,  
Banff HCLS session, and the actual publication of the BMC manuscript!

Cheers,
Bill
