Seminars will provide participants the opportunity to have a collaborative conversation around a particular topic. Seminars will be capped at 15 participants and will be run by co-facilitators with expertise in the topic. Each participant will submit a five-page position paper before the conference to be read in advance by the other participants so that seminar time can be reserved for discussion. Seminar participants will be listed in the program.
We hope to see you in Albuquerque,


Hester Blum, President

Meredith McGill, Vice President

Carrie Tirado Bramen, Program Chair

Alex Black, Program Committee member

Martha Schoolman, Program Committee member
