Conference Theme
Our focus on the currents, waves, and tides of globalization has also been inspired by the advice offered to virtually every newcomer to Hawai'i: never turn your back on the ocean. The waters of the Pacific can be a source of pleasure and excitement, but they can also pose serious dangers. In the tide of globalization, how can we negotiate the currents and ride the waves in ways that are productive for us, our students, and our communities?

With this theme, we hope to provide a challenging focus for papers, panels, roundtable discussions, keynote addresses, and informal conversations while preserving the rich diversity of presentation topics that has been a hallmark of the Computers and Writing Conference.
