Update on IARIW Activities
Update on IARIW Activities-August 11, 2008

Preparations for the 30th IARIW General Conference in Portoroz, Slovenia August 24-30 are almost complete. With over 250 persons already registered, the conference will likely set a record for attendance.

On-line Availability of Papers for the 30th IARIW General Conference.

It has long been an IARIW tradition to distribute by mail conference papers before the conference to allow participants the opportunity to read them. It was felt that this availability improved the quality of the discussion at the conference. The internet now allows up to make papers available at no virtually cost before the conference not just to those attending the conference, but to all members, and indeed to the general public. I am pleased to announce that papers for the upcoming 30th IARIW General Conference to be held in Portoroz, Slovenia August 24-30 are now posted at http://www.iariw.org/c2008.asp. I hope that many conference participants will have an opportunity to read papers of interest before the conference and to relate their comments to the authors at the conference.
