Welcome to the website for the 6th Biennial Conference of the International Auto/Biographical Association. This site will be the main source of information for conference participants and attendees, but if you have any further questions, please contact Maile Gresham, Conference Co-ordinator, or Craig Howes, Conference Director.

We will be adding and updating sections over the next two or three months. At the moment, our primary concerns are registration, accommodation, conference facilities, food, and transportation arrangements. The online registration page will appear by the beginning of March, but you can make your reservations, and receive the conference room discount, at the Ala Moana Hotel now. (For more information, see Housing and Registration).

Since June is a busy month in Hawai‘i, thanks to honeymoons among other things, we urge you to make your flight arrangements immediately. Please make sure to arrange to attend the entire conference, which begins on Monday, June 23rd in the morning. We’ve made arrangements with the Ala Moana to extend the discount period for a number of days on both sides of the conference dates.

We have processed all requests for funding, and informed applicants of our decision. We will be shortly turning to the program, and a tentative schedule will appear on this webpage in the next month.

When we have more information about any of these areas, you will be the first to know. Please check the website regularly; we will indicate on the homepage what we have added recently.

We’re very much looking forward to seeing everyone in June.

Me ke aloha

Craig Howes, Conference Director             Maile Gresham, Conference Coordinator
