Roommate Location Service (Attention Conference Attendees)
On behalf of the Women in Control (WiC), Prof. May-Win Thein will be organizing a Roommate Location Service for CDC01. If you would like to share a hotel room and need assistance finding a roommate, send an email message to with your:
(1) name,
(2) gender,
(3) email address and other contact information,
(4) date arriving at the Conference hotel,
(5) date checking out of the Conference hotel,
(6) smoking preference,
(7) any other information you wish to add.
This information will be compiled into separate lists for male/female respondents and distributed by email. You will be responsible for contacting and screening prospective roommates from that list and making your own hotel reservations and arrangements. Please note that this service is a resource to merely locate potential roommates, not to match specific individuals together. In so doing, neither the organizer nor WiC will be held responsible for any situations that arise as a result of room sharing between particular parties. In addition, this service will end after November 1, 2001. Therefore, interested individuals should send the above information well before this date. The Operating Committee of the 40th CDC would like to thank WiC and Prof. May-Win Thein of The University of New Hampshire for organizing this Roommate Location Service.
