Fourth Research Conference on Relational Aggression

Tuesday, June 15th and Wednesday, June 16th

Plans for the 4th Conference on Relational Aggression are firming up quite nicely. Just a reminder that the conference will take place at the student center of the University of Nebraska at Omaha on June 15-16, 2010. Below you will find information about scheduled speakers, transportation and accommodations, and registration (free!). We are very excited to be hosting this gathering and look forward to all of the wonderful presentations and engaging conversations that accompany them. This conference is also a great opportunity to discuss putting together symposiums for SRCD and other conferences. Please plan ahead with regards to symposium ideas so that we can make the most of our time together.

If I can be of any assistance to you as you make your plans or if you have any questions please let me know. I can be reached at jcasas@unomha.edu or (402)554-2548.

We hope your semesters are all wrapping up nicely and we look forward to seeing you in Omaha soon!

Warm Regards,
Dr. Juan F. Casas
