problems, and solutions
ü Exhibits showing any relevant forms, artwork, printouts, etc.

A list of participants in electronic form to assist future conferences
In general, the report tends to be an expansion of the information given verbally at the wrap-up session. It should not contain all the detailed information used by the committee during the course of the conference, but neither should it be so brief that it will be useless to members of succeeding conferences. The more detailed information should be retained for some time after the conference, in order to answer questions of the succeeding conference chairs.
The report should include information of an archival nature that should be retained by the sponsoring organizational unit to continue to improve the planning process. Some things to include in the archive:
ü Papers: Number submitted, accepted, invited talks
