I have just sent off a form of my dissertation idea as a 2 page proposal to yet a 3rd conference.  I have 1 rejection, 1 not answered yet, this is number 3 and I have to write up a longer version for AERA.  Each version only barely resembles the prior, and the ideas are getting refined each time, but I would really like it to be accepted somewhere, at least once.  The ideas really won’t get refined until I actually WRITE the silly paper…
