    Dear colleagues

    For those of you planning your itinerary to the CaSTA Symposium in
    Victoria, we have information about excellent rates ($70 single + taxes) at
    our designated hotel, the Hotel Grand Pacific:
    Shuttles from the airport to the hotels downtown run frequently. Please be
    sure to ask the hotel for the government rate, and cite the University of
    Victoria. The all-day conference will begin early on the 14th November.
    Arrival on the 13th is therefore advisable There is a high probability of a
    public lecture on a very closely-related topic at 7.30 that evening.
    Details will be posted here when confirmed.

    Second piece of good news: there will be no conference fee.
    Local directions will be provided on the conference website, along with the
    Program, once it has been organized.

    And thirdly: if you have not yet submitted your Abstract, there's still time.
    Here are the details once more:

             Subject: workshop on Internet research ethics

    Hey Willard:
    Sorry to trouble you again so quickly - but if you wouldn't mind passing
    this on to the HUMANIST list, I'd be grateful!
    Please pass on to interested colleagues and/or appropriate lists:

    I'm pleased to announce a pre-conference workshop on Internet research
    ethics - scheduled for October 15, 2003 - as part of the Association of
    Internet Researchers' 4th annual conference, "Broadening the Band," in
    Toronto, Canada (see <http://www.ecommons.net/aoir/>).
    The workshop features presentations from prominent researchers and ethicists
    who've been at the forefront of developing online research guidelines,
    including AoIR and AoIR ethics committee members Elizabeth Buchanan, Jeremy
    Hunsinger, Michele White, Leslie Tkach Kawasaki, and Klaus Bruhn Jensen.
    The workshop focuses on real-world ethical issues encountered in Internet
    research - and ways of addressing and resolving these. Workshop
    participants are encouraged to contribute their particular issues and
    experience to the multiple opportunities for shared discussion.
