Panel proposals should address controversial issues and must be debate-oriented rather than a series of short presentations. The proposal should include the topic title, a short statement about the importance and relevance of the panel and the potential issues of controversy, a tentative list of questions that will be posed to the panelists, a list of confirmed participants along with their affiliation, and a short bio of each participant. Panel proposals should be submitted electronically by March 5, 2004 (9:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time) to:

Jarek Gryz, jarek@cs.yorku.ca
Fred Lochovsky, fred@cs.ust.hk

Short panel summaries will appear in the Proceedings.
