Here's the session list and details of the Association For Heterodox
Economics conference at the end of June in London





        344-354 Gray's Inn Road, London WC1X 8BP

        Tuesday-Wednesday, 27-28 June 2000




1. Getting to The Open University Conference Centre: see the enclosed flyer
and map.

2. All sessions will be in Rooms 1, 2, and 7. Registration will be in the
foyer as you enter the Conference Centre.

3. Each paper is scheduled for 20-25 minutes and there will be 20-30 minutes
for discussion. Each room will be supplied with flipcharts and overhead

4. The chairperson oversees the session and is to make sure that the
presenter does not over-run their allocated time.

5. Each presenter should bring at least 5 copies of his/her paper to the
Conference. Each presenter should also send a copy of their paper to the
chairperson of their session.

6. There will be a poster session on the first day. There will be eight
presenters who will have put on one or two poster boards the essential
points of their papers. The conference participants are encouraged to
attend the session, examine the posters and engage the presenters in
discussion and with questions.

7. The poster boards and other material for the poster session will be
available during the morning and from 1.00 to 2.00 p.m. in Room 1.

8. There will be two plenary sessions at the end of each day. Because it
takes time to set up the room for the plenary session, there will be a 55
minute break between the last session and the plenary session. There is a
conference pub where participants can socialise: Lucas Arms on Grays Inn

9. Meals will not be provided by the Conference, except for the dinner on
the first night--see below. The Kings Cross area has many places to eat, so
you need not go far to get a meal.
10. There will be a dinner on Tuesday 27 June 2000 starting at 8.30 p.m.
Tickets are required and have to bought ahead of time. The restaurant is
very close to the Conference Centre.

11. Book publishers will be present at the Conference.

12. The Conference is supported by the Conference of Socialist Economists,
the Post Keynesian Economics Study Group, and the International Working
Group on Value Theory.
