So, we're down to the last month of the CFP, and I've yet to see most of 
this content appear in the proposed papers. I wonder if folks can take a 
look back over this conversation, and either submit the talks that 
you've suggested, or bug someone who might be able/willing to give the 
talk in Austin.

The above Google doc is still open for suggestions and edits, as well as 
for listing the URL of the talk(s) you have proposed.

I'd really like to have two days of content (that's either 12 or 11 
talks, depending on which days we go with) and I'm confident that 
there's that much content out there, but getting people to present it is 
harder than it once was. I could really use your help.
