Dear PAMLA conference presiding officers, chairs, presenters, and attendees,
Thank you all for your patience as we’ve worked to design the 2010 PAMLA conference program so as to meet everyone’s needs. With approximately 135 sessions and five hundred papers on a wide variety of fascinating topics, you simply don’t want to miss this conference.
You may find and read the conference program here: https://www.pamla.org/2010/schedule . In order to find out more about the papers and participants for each session, simply click on the session title.
Visit the official PAMLA 2010 Conference Site to find all the details about the upcoming conference, including accommodations, registration, and schedule.
Some suggestions and requests for those who are attending the conference:
If you are a presiding officer, chair, or presenter, please do check your session information, name, affiliation, paper title, and abstract for accuracy (including words that need to be italicized, for example). If you have changes that need to be made to the program, please email those changes to [email protected] and I will make them for you. I’d especially love to have the presiding officers check their sessions and send me their desired changes. In your email, be sure to be very clear and specific about the exact nature of your requested changes.
If you are attending the conference, remember that you need to pay your 2010 PAMLA dues and conference fee, if you haven’t yet done so: PAMLA 2010 Registration. The due date for payment is September 15, and anyone who hasn’t paid by that date will be removed from the conference schedule (so please take care of this duty right away). If you want to join us for either the Presidential Address Luncheon or Plenary Address Luncheon, you have to pay for those events as well (these luncheons are not included in the cost of the conference itself).
If you can, please consider making a charitable donation to the PAMLA Graduate Student Scholarship Fund.
If you haven’t made your travel arrangements yet, you probably should book your flight and hotel room very soon.
NOTE: The official PAMLA hotel, the Doubletree Alana Hotel Waikiki, is now sold out, as is our first additional hotel, the Ilikai Hotel & Suites Waikiki. The good news is that we have a great overflow hotels available: the lovely, highly-rated 3.5 star Ala Moana Hotel. Please visit our Accomodations page for more information: https://www.pamla.org/2010/accommodations
Finally, if for some reason you will not be able to attend the conference, please let your presiding officer and me know right away.
If you have any questions or concerns about room reservations, please send PAMLA Executive Director Craig Svonkin an email: [email protected] .
Thank you all for helping PAMLA to create a truly wonderful social, cultural, and intellectual event.
Mahalo, Craig Svonkin
