I am organizing a scientific seminar held at the end of August. Today, I was sending e-mails to look for participants to the seminar.
I was expecting 50 participants, but there are only 30 registrations till today, June 28, and the deadline is July 1!
It was hot today, and I was in my office with only an electric fan, sending e-mails and making telephone calls.
Asian students and scientists are coming, but Americans, Europeans, and Japaneses seem to hesitate to join the meeting.
Some more decided to come after my calls, but I want more people. So tomorrow, I will do the same.
