[Neutron] Session Chair Needed: NOBUGS 2006 Neutron user software

We need a neutron user software session chair.

The NOBUGS 2006 session for talks concerning user software (tentatively 
titled "Neutron data acquistion, analysis and control") still does not 
have a session chair.  This person would organize the talks already 
submitted in this area and encourage other significant contributors to 
neutron user software to add their voices to the NOBUGS 2006 conference. 
  Abstracts submitted are not yet on the NOBUGS website (see below) but 
will be soon.

Time is short.  I have appended the request for abstracts sent to this 
list earlier; note though that the last date for submission of abstracts 
has been pushed to 11 Septempter and the last date for "early" 
registration to 17 September.

If you are interested in being the session chair or know a good 
candidate, please reply to me offline.  Thank you.
