The Salons are a development on the Unconference sessions that MW has hosted in the past, offering a hybrid of planned conversations and timely spontaneity. They are an opportunity for groups with shared interests on specific topics to come together without formal, peer reviewed presentations, but with the opportunity to begin self-organizing through blogs on this website in advance, and the possibility to continue the discussion online after our in-person meeting. By connecting these special interest groups before and during the conference, we hope that some of the Salon gatherings will lead to more formal paper proposals and collaborations next year. The Salons will be held Thursday afternoon from 3-6pm. They'll begin with a plenary planning session in the "unconference" style; Salons proposed here through the MW2013 website will be added to the list of sessions proposed on the day at the conference. Once the final roster of 16 Salons is agreed by popular vote, there will be two, one-hour Salon sessions with eight discussions running in parallel in each hour. Salon leaders are encouraged to publish notes from their sessions in this "Salon" section of the MW2013 website and also use this online space to continue the conversation after the in-person meeting. To submit a Salon topic please login or register and visit the Salon. The MW2013 sessions are: 4-5pm
