Invited Talks, Take 2
Our community invites researchers to give prestigious talks. In a few recent instances, there have been discussions: should we invite a person when they have given invited before, in the same venue, or equivalent venue elsewhere? In each instance people involved know there are exceptions, so I am not talking about these instances, but the larger context, that we as a community seem to not want to repeat invited speakers. Why? May be we need to spread the honor of these invitations across the field, but function should triumph: researchers are polymaths capable of leadership in 2 or more areas, and capable of having more than one set of important things to say.
