CASID conference UPDATE 1 May 30th


Dear colleagues, (I will send brief updates and information each night over the next three nights to provide additional information you may need to help you navigate the Congress/CASID
events). 

Conference Update 1 of 3:

We look forward to greeting you tomorrow. The CASID conference begins at 8:45 am on May 31 in TRSM 3-167 (Ted Rogers School of Management) in the Harry Rosen Lecture Theatre.
This building is located at 55 Dundas Street West (which is near the Eaton's Centre and a bit removed from the main Ryerson campus). At the opening plenary I will provide some general information for the meeting days ahead. 

There will be volunteers around holding up bright blue signs that say CASID VOLUNTEER. These volunteers can help you find your room or give some help moving between rooms/buildings.
They will generally be located outside classrooms during the breaks. Feel free to approach our wonderful volunteers with your questions.

Dear colleagues,

 

Attached is a powerpoint slide presentation of the recent publications by CASID members.

Please have a look at the powerpoint slide. If you would like me to add your publication, let me know by Friday afternoon – May 26th – tomorrow (I`m running out of time
before the book launch). I know there are more recent books published by our CASID members so be in touch.

 

Please send me the title, an image (or a link to the image), the publisher and the date of publication.
