Notice: A change in the 2010 meeting venue has been made. The optional workshop and the conference will be held on the campus of Nicholls State University. The conference will NOT be held at the Jean Lafitte Center as originally scheduled. Maps to the new conference location can be accessed here. Please forward this information to anyone interested.
The 2010 meeting program and the full book of abstracts (with maps) are now available! Please note the meeting program will be printed and available at the meeting. However, we will not have a hard copy of the entire book of abstracts available. We are requesting that each person print their own.
