Author Comment
Subject: If you wish to see papers 2 or 3, come early!
Thank you for your interest in our session. Just to let you know, our first presenter will unfortunately not be able to attend, so we will have some preliminary remarks about how we came up with the idea for this panel, and then will be starting with paper number 2. If you are interested in seeing either Katharine's or Junko's papers, please note that they will be speaking earlier than you might have expected.

Best wishes,
Jackie and Michelle
