I've just noticed when looking at the conference program that there is a *Panel led Q&A session (webcast)* at 5pm on day 2 of the conference.
Does this mean what I think it means ?? and that this is going to be a live webcast for everyone to see ?

Ive emailed a few people trying to find out, perhaps if anyone else can try and find out ?

*editing this just found out YES there will be a live Q&A at the end of the conference....check out...http://videocast.nih.gov/summary.asp?live=9582

But is there any indication that people can send in questions, as opposed to them just accepting questions from the floor or the press or whatever?

To work out the time, if you go to Google and type in, "what time is it in ***" (e.g. "what time is it in New York") and do the search, the answer will appear at the top of the screen. That makes it easy to work out how far anywhere is in front of/behind us. I don't know where the conference is, though!

i dont no where its being held either! :) but thanks!
Just unslothed myself and looked! It's in Bethesda, Maryland, and they're 5 hours behind UK time.

I like that Google method because I never know whether we're on GMT or BST!

I doubt that they are open to outside questions, but we need to find out.

If I could ask one, I would ask them to speak to how important patient cohert--i.e., based on the clinical/research definition of the ME/CFS patients is. Clearly the Canadian Consensus Definition was derived from the greatest expertise internationally. It is far more specific and coherent in terms of all the physical systems involved. How can not using these criteria for patient selection be justified any longer, medically?

u.s.a.
I would like to ask what method the CDC used to sabotage their samples, microwave or what is most effective?
