The CFP for SODA 2007 is out (thanks, Jeff). The humungous size of the geometry contingent is balanced by the humungous size of the commitee. This commitee has 27 folks, an increase of 4 over SODA 2006 and 2005. Submission counts have been going up by a little under 10% each year, and I guess Hal Gabow is also trying to reduce the load on each committee member: 500 * 3/27 = 55.56. Good luck, folks !!
In other news, short papers are still dead. May they rest in peace
