Registrants for the 2012 Annual Conference in Los Angeles can now download Abstracts 2012. This publication, available as a PDF, summarizes the contents of hundreds of papers and talks that will be presented in program sessions.
Reading the abstracts in advance can help you plan your daily schedule at the conference. Program sessions are alphabetized by the chair’s last name and appear in the contents pages (4–10). An index in the back of the publication names all the speakers. Alternatively, use your Adobe Reader to conduct a keyword search for terms relevant to your interests.
After conference registrants log into their CAA account, they can click the “Abstracts 2012” image in the middle of the screen to download the PDF (1.9 MB). Abstracts 2012 is part of the registration package; there is no added cost to paid or complimentary registrants for this publication.
Conference attendees who purchase single-time slot tickets, or those who want Abstracts 2012 but are not coming to Los Angeles, may attain the document for a charge: $30 for CAA members and $35 for nonmembers. Abstracts 2012 will remain on the CAA website for download or sale through July 31, 2012.
Beginning with the 2010 conference in Chicago, CAA offers its Abstracts exclusively as a PDF download. Past issues of the printed publication from 1999 to 2009 are also available. The cost per copy is $30 for CAA members and $35 for nonmembers. For more information and to order, please contact Roberta Lawson, CAA office coordinator.
