Active audience participation has been the norm at past symposiums and is encouraged again this year. Each paper will be assigned to a discussant. All participants are expected to stay during the entire conference, which begins with a reception on Thursday evening, May 29, and ends with lunch on Saturday, May 31, 2014.
Two awards will be given out for best discussion ($2500 each). Awards are based on anonymous votes of the participants at the end of the final session and will be announced at lunch on Saturday.
