Flow Conference 2008 will resemble traditional academic meetings in name only: There will be no panels, no papers, and no plenary sessions. Instead, the event will feature a series of roundtables, each organized around a compelling question. To learn more about the structure of the conference, visit our FAQ page. All roundtables will take place in the Texas Union; visit the Conference Site & Local Info page for more information.
