How to run the annual NSF Fellows' Symposium
A work in progress - more information to come soon
Running the symposium takes a bit of work, but not
too much, and at this point there's nearly a decade's worth of
experience to draw upon. Rachel and I learned from the expert
guidance of Kurtis and Peter, who in turn were guided by Nate and
Erik, and so on into the far reaches of AAPF prehistory. All this
knowledge will be presented to whoever next year's organizers are, in
the form of a handy packet of documents and a couple of phone calls.
This is definitely a job for two people.
Basically the work is very much clustered in time: a brief flurry of
activity in each of June, October, and January. So it's a commitment,
but a pretty straightforward one to do.
