I posted a note
a while back about an upcoming workshop at Microsoft Research on computational education for scientists. If you read the call for papers
, you'll discover that there aren't any instructions on how to submit material; nor is there any contact information, other than the generic "contact us" link the bottom corner that gives you nothing more than Microsoft's generic 1-800 number ("press 1 for Windows Vista support..."). After bouncing around for five minutes, I got a human being who told me that she couldn't give out any phone numbers, but I was welcome to fax my question to them...
On the bright side, Microsoft is running another computational science conference
this fall (in North Carolina).
