One approach to limiting the ICRS would be to focus on having regional
conferences the year before, and have only invited papers (and posters) at
the global ICRS. The =93Regionals=94 could be staggered so that the global
organizers could attend and select. One could emphasize producing a balance=
and representative global program, thereby minimizing the feeling that a
paper not chosen was not =93good enough=94. There have, at least in the pas=
been national/regional ICRS in Australia and Europe. Perhaps a few more
could be added. I would push them up to the year before, so as to maintain
currency and avoid concurrency with the ITMEMS.
