Dear Elliott,

We as local organizers of the ISH 2003 meeting in Vienna are not aware of
any "opposition to ISH's publicizing the occurrence of this symposium"
whatsoever. We always agreed to publicize the symposium by means of fliers
announcing it to meeting participants at the ISH registration desk, as asked
to us by Dr. Hofer and Prof. Hubenstorf (registration starts tomorrow at
3 pm).  As of now, Tuesday July 15,1600 hours CET, we have not received any
materials from the organizer(s) (in fact, we had not seen the document
announcing the symposium program until we read your attachment), but we
assume that the said fliers will be made available to us in time for
distribution.  If the organizer(s) also provide us with posters (this
is the first time we see posters mentioned) we will gladly put them up.
Although we cannot speak for Rob Skipper, the ISH webmaster, or Roberta
Millstein, who manages the ISH listserv, we are sure that they would have
been understanding and cooperative had they been requested to announce
the symposium in due time.  Given that the ISH meeting starts tomorrow and
that most participants are now on their way, if they have not already arrived
in Vienna, it seems pointless to make an email announcement to all
participants at this late time still.  What we can do is see to it that
ISH meeting participants registering tomorrow before 8 pm (when the
symposium starts) are duly informed.  In fact, since we now possess the
official program of the symposium, we will multiply it ourselves if
the organizer(s) do not deliver their materials in time.

Werner Callebaut and Astrid Juette
Local Arrangements, ISH 2003

P.S. to Roberta:  Roberta, if you are still there, please announce this
on the listserv.

[Moderator's note: I will confirm that I did not receive information about the symposium until the Sunday before the conference, when I was out of town.  -RLM]
