I am also one of the many participants who has 
not received a copy of the 9ICRS proceedings from 
Bali and have also made many attempts to contact 
the organisers with no response over the past 3 
years. I was the organiser, convenor and editor 
for one of the mini-symposia (A18 Reproduction) 
at Bali, and put in a lot of time and effort to 
organise the papers from this session for these 
proceedings, so am very frustrated at the delay 
in receiving a copy or acknowledgement of my many 
emails to the Bali organising committee.
Given the importance of this issue for the 
credibility of the ICRS, it would seem 
appropriate for the Society council to take 
immdeiate action to rectify the problem, and 
update the Society members on the current status 
of negaotiations to have the final copies 
distributed to all registered participants who 
paid for their copy of the proceedings.
cheers, Peter

>   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.
