Invitation to Submit Ideas for Special-Topic Sessions
In addition to the topics and sessions listed above, if you have ideas about special topics that could benefit the emissions inventory community, please let us know. Please be specific about the topic and the intended audience (i.e.,) whether it may benefit the broader inventory community or more narrow audience), and suggest how you think it could be delivered within the technical program. Such special topics might be woven into the technical program as a new session area, panel discussion forums, lunchtime informational seminars, or as Internet-Web session. Please email your specific ideas by December 31, 2008 to Ms. Lee Tooly at 2009EICtechprogram@epa.gov.
