An apologia for papers poorly scheduled



During the program planning for my last AGU annual meeting as SPR Magnetospheric section secretary, I realized the need to apologize to the many people who were upset or disappointed by the scheduling of their talks at the annual meetings. Thus, I apologize to those who were scheduled …

… on Monday or Friday (I also apologize to those who didn't want anything in the middle of the week.)

… just before lunch or just after lunch … just before coffee breaks or just after coffee breaks. (I should also apologize to those whose talks were “too early in the morning” or “too late in the afternoon.”)
