## Main Question or Discussion Point

This is the second half of the poll. Of the ten candidates in Part II, please indicate the ones you think will prove most significant for future Loop-and-allied QG research. The poll is multiple choice, and it's possible to vote for several papers. Abstracts follow in the next post. Here's a link to the other half of the poll:

==================================

The 20 candidate papers are divided into two sets because the poll format only accepts up to 10 options. Notice that because out of habit I list the papers in reverse chronological order it happens that this second batch consists of interesting papers that appeared EARLY in the quarter. We've had longer to think about them and see how they've been received. ...

Here are the papers on Part I (please check out both parts of the poll!) :
