TCPT 2012 Conference Schedule

The schedule is finally here! As you can see from our list of papers, it will prove to be an excellent discussion. Indeed, with presenters from California to Ohio, we have received a much greater response than we had expected for an inaugural conference. We look forward to seeing you there! This is a map of campus–all sessions will take place in the same building (Bolthouse/Faber). Here is the schedule. It will be updated with further information as we get closer to the event (forgive the obtrusive formatting; it looks much better in a word document):
