{sorry for the crosspost}

Anyone wishing to participate virtually, email me with

1] Why do you want to participate - your thoughts and experience at this 

2] Your email address, Name, affiliation and so on

Posting of abstracts from the Precon that happens on October 15 at Toronto 
still depends on whether participants there give me permission to do so.
