on the work of particular authors, they should be named; so should

Avoid jargon, technical terms, complex formulae, etc., and use
language that can be understood by and appeal to a broad audience.
The 20-word description of your intended audience (required by NCHC)
is important to the success of your session. Let the reader know for
