      IMPORTANT NOTE
      - --------------
      
      APRICOT is a TECHNICAL conference so marketing and commercial content
      is not allowed within the program.  The program committee is charged
      with maintaining the technical standard of APRICOT, and will therefore
      not accept inappropriate materials.  It is expected that the presenter
      be a technical person and not a sales or marketing person.  The
      audience is extremely technical and expects that the speakers are
      themselves very knowledgeable.  All sessions provide time for
      questions, so presenters should expect technical questions and be
      prepared to deliver insightful and technically deep responses.
      
      
      FUNDING AND SUPPORT
      - -------------------
      
      APRICOT is a not-for-profit event that tries to keep the cost to
      attendees low; for this reason we are unable to pay the travel costs
      of or provide complimentary registrations for conference speakers.
      
      However, the main presenter of accepted tutorials will receive
      complimentary registration to both the tutorials and conference.
      
      Speakers from developing countries may be eligible for the APRICOT
      Fellowship Program.  This provides basic assistance to successful
      fellows to cover local living and registration expenses associated
      with attending the conference.
      
      More information on the APRICOT Fellowship program can be found at the
      APRICOT 2009 website at http://www.apricot2009.net/
      
      
      Thanks.
