Why do you want a free ISMIR registration?

Sun is sponsoring ISMIR again this year. As part of our sponsorship, we've been given two registrations. One of the registrations is going to our intern Fran├žois as our way of saying thanks for all his hard work, but we still have one to give away.

We'd really like for it to go to someone who really needs it, so if you would like to get our second registration, please send me a paragraph (just one paragraph!) explaining why you need our free registration. Send it to me by this Friday, August 14th, at noon EST, and a panel of experts (well, me and Paul) will look at them and decide who gets the registration.

And don't worry if you've already registered, if we select you, you'll get a refund.

Is there a winner? ;)

Not yet. We only got one submission!

So, was it a kind of "invalid submission", then?
Else, it should be clear who gets the registration isn't it? ;-)
