Dear Tom,

Still no word re Southampton - the set deadline was February 1st, so I expect the decision on our panel to arrive literally every day now. I am aware that schedule might be an issue and that travel arrangements need to be finalised, especially transatlantic ones - if I hear nothing from them by Monday morning, I'll contact the organisers and let you know asap.

Best wishes, as always,

Yael
