8. Our deadline for reviewing is Feb 2. Decisions will go out to submitters mid February
9. Potential action item for EC meeting: APS is awesome! SIOPers should be more involved! I feel it should be written into the official documents that the APS chair should work with the TIP editor, newsletter, website, etc. to do much more coordinated marketing of various deadlines, conference announcements, etc. I should have done more of this, but since there wasn't a more formal protocol, it often fell off my plate. If there was something for the APS reps that aligned APS dates with TIP dates, that would help a lot. A tiny, ongoing, regular column in TIP for APS would be tremendous. I could work on putting something like this together for Deidra and Maria if the EC wants.
10. Misc item: Have Deidra and Maria been informed about the EC meeting?
11. The final submission count for the whole conference at the closing bell was 1980.
12. Applying their fancy attendance prediction algorithms has lead them to expect 3100 attendees this year (little less than last year but still quite high).
13. Paul Ekman is going to be on television tonight (on Fox, after American Idol) discussing how his research is being used in the show Lie To Me. There will be a follow-up panel at the conference about the use of psychological research in Hollywood: http://www.psychologicalscience.org/convention/program_detail.cfm?abstract_id=15583.
