I'm not a member of the committee, but do know a little about how the process
works. And I'm afraid you've missed the pre-meeting mailing for the Portland
meeting in Oct. In all likelihood that means it might be very difficult to
get your proposal on the agenda....which means it likely won't make it into
tr2 given that Portland is the cutoff for new proposals.

Still you shouldn't give up. This looks very useful to me and would be a nice
contribution to Boost even if it doesn't make read on.

Sorry to hear that. Sometimes there's alot of email and it takes a bit of
persistence to get attention. I would hope that John Maddock and Paul Bristow
could evaluate your proposal as they've been working on some math and
statistical interfaces. Last I know the link is at:

Maybe there's enough synergy to work together on these?
