A free reception, hosted by the former presidents of CAMWS, will open the meeting, 8:00-10:00 p.m., Wednesday, in the Millennium Harvest House. Between Thursday morning and Saturday afternoon there will be four pedagogical workshops, eight panels, and twelve paper sessions on a wide variety of pedagogical and scholarly topics. New this year are roundtable discussions at noon on Thursday and Saturday on a variety of topics including a Tabula Latina, the National Latin Exam, the CAMWS Translation Exam and Greek pedagogy.
