Kauai, Hawaii

“Final” Program

39th Annual Meeting

Western Regional Science Association

February 26 – March 1, 2000

Sheraton Kauai Resort ~ Poipu, Hawaii

(Version 5.00;  Last updated: February 18, 2000)  Please check for changes in scheduling.

I shall be leaving for Kauai on the morning of Febuary 19, so this is the last update of the Program prior to the conference.  This version includes some changes since we sent to the printers the “Final”Program that you will receive at the conference.  Room locations have been added on this version.

 


PROGRAM PARTICIPANTS:  Aloha.  Check this Preliminary Program closely to find the scheduling of your paper as well as your discussant and/or chair assignment(s).  To help you in this task, click here to go to the Participant Locator.

Please note that longstanding WRSA tradition and policy is that all paper presenters may be assigned discussant and/or chair duties.  The Program Co-chairs have attempted to select persons with appropriate skills and interests to discuss each paper, given the very limited number of “degrees of freedom” imposed by scheduling constraints.  Even if you do not consider yourself to be the ideal discussant for the paper you have been assigned, rest assured that the most interesting suggestions and questions sometimes come from scholars with slightly different perspectives than those of the author.

The Program Co-chairs consider the Program posted here to be “final” with respect to scheduling papers and will resist making any changes.  They’ve attempted to honor all scheduling requests received prior to December 1.  Any further program changes must be kept to a minimum due to the fullness of the Program and the need not to inconvenience others with last-minute swaps.  Even a seemingly simple change will often lead to a chain reaction of other changes.  Please do, however, continue to check this web-site for the most up-to-date version of the Program between now and the opening of the conference in late February.

Feel free to print out and/or download this Program.  This year you will not be receiving a hard-copy version in the regular mail.  (In the past these often took quite sometime to reach participants and did not always contain the most up-to-date information.)  In mid-January copies of the papers will be mailed out to discussants and session chairs.  If you have revised your paper since submitting it, please send three (3) hard copies to the Association office in Tucson by January 1.  After that date it becomes your responsibility to get any newer versions directly to your discussant and chair.

Mahalo.
