FANHS conference full schedule overview !

Many of you have been waiting to see this schedule. Again, please click on the box in the upper right corner to see a full view of the schedule. (I write this reminder upon request ;-) Please also note that workshops and panels -- and not individual presentations -- are listed here. If you're a presenter, please note the code T1, or F2, etc., in the email you've already received. The codes mean T1= Thursday, Concurrent Session 1, for example. "P" denotes plenary sessions. To decide on each panel's title, it's been great that panelists have been in engaging in on-line dialogue and getting to know each other before the conference. In light of ongoing dialogue, some of these titles will change by conference time. Again, if you haven't registered, there's still time to send in registration forms. (See posts below for forms). Or you may register on site. Watch for press releases that describe sessions in more depth. See you in Alaska! ~Joanie
