2002 ABO Research
The 2002 ABO Research Conference was
held in Dallas, Texas on October 18-19. Fifty-six people attended the
conference. Thirty-two research papers were presented and an editors' panel was
also included. A highlight of the conference was the presentation of the ABO
Lifetime Contribution Award to Anthony Hopwood.
I appreciate the participation of all
concerned, particularly that of the presenters and reviewers. I was amazed at
the level of support; a total of 174 ABO members volunteered to review papers.
Although I did not have to utilize such a large number of reviewers, the
generous offer to help was greatly appreciated.
