The bulk of the conference will take place between Thursday evening and Sunday morning. You will not miss any of the keynote speeches if you are only able to come for that length of time. However, we have planned activities for late Thursday afternoon and early Sunday afternoon at this point–a get-to-know-you collective wisdom activity and a set of longer participant-led workshops–and we may eventually extend the conference to as early as Thursday morning and to as late as Sunday evening, depending on the number of interesting proposals we get in the next few months. We want to encourage you to arrive on Wednesday the 28th and to leave on Monday the 2nd, if you are able to. This will allow you ample time to enjoy the magnificent site and facilities of Mount Madonna Center without missing any of the conference activities–as well as providing a precious opportunity to relax and focus before the conference and to decompress after it. And it will allow us to schedule additional sessions, knowing that there will be an audience for them. If you would like to reserve extra nights, just write to Registration Co-Chair Louise Smith (email@example.com) with your arrival and departure dates. She will add the appropriate charges for room and board to your final bill (with no additional registration charge).
