It is the responsibility of the Selecting Committee to evaluate all proposals and select a high quality variety of workshops that will meet the needs of a diverse audience.
  The Selecting Committee will review all abstracts and will select those which...

a. have a direct relationship to the conference and are relevant to the audience.

For this reason we strongly discourage the reading aloud of written papers.
