Dear All,

I would just like to echo Laurent's query.

I too was about to raise this same matter on the list after making some enquiries to colleagues yesterday. I only know one person who has received a copy of the 9ICRS proceedings. That person told me that they had been informed that there may be none left now. I am not sure what to make of this but if it is true I presume Laurent, I, and many others, who all paid the full whack at Bali, may be left out having patiently let this situation roll on for years. I wonder how many of us there are.

If what I have heard is not true, and everyone who registered can still expect to receive a copy, I wonder if anyone knows what is being done to speed things up (four years down the line). I have made several attempts to contact the distributors as well as certain individuals whom I believe were involved in the production, and have never received a single acknowledgement or response. 

I am not aware of any public announcement on the matter but perhaps it is about time, as a matter of courtesy, that there was one.  I wonder if those responsible could inform us how many have been sent out already, how many are still going to be sent out, and, if there is going to be a shortfall will those that receive nothing at least get an apology/explanation and maybe some of their fees back.

  Subject: [Coral-List] ICRS proceedings

  Dear all,

  I am wondering if a lot of people, like me, have still not received the
  proceedings of the 9th ICRS, a few weeks from the 10th symposium...

  I know that there has been some problems with these proceedings and that the
  subject has already been discussed on the coral list. But I am seriously
  asking myself on the opportunity to submit an article for the proceedings of
  the ICRS when I see that 4 years after the 9th congress the results
  presented are not available. If I receive these proceedings some articles
  will probaly been outdated...

  The ICRS is a hudge and popular symposium, and most of all very expensive.
  So the participants should get the proceedings rapidly which was not the
  case for the 3 last symposiums.

  Best wishes
