Balisage paper deadline 19 April 2013

[9 April 2013]

Ten days to go until the paper deadline for Balisage 2013 and for the International Symposium on Native XML user interfaces, this August in Montréal.

If you have been thinking about submitting a paper to Balisage or the Symosium (and if you’re reading this blog, I bet the thought has crossed your mind at least once!), you may be thinking &ldquo:Ten days! Too late!” At times like this (when the deadline is not past, but it feels a little tight) I find it helpful to recall a remark attributed to Leonard Bernstein:

To achieve great things, two things are needed; a plan, and not quite enough time.

True, there’s not quite as much time to write your paper as you’d like. But think of this not as a reason to give up but as your opportunity to achieve great things!
