This conference will bring together academic and community stakeholders to discuss multiple facets of immigration, make policy recommendations, and foster on-going collaboration. Community stakeholders who are interested in sharing “best practices” in working with immigrant communities or models of immigrant integration are particularly encouraged to participate. They may do so by submitting a summary of their best practices and/or models.
The conference will feature a Keynote Address by Dr. Annalee Saxenian, Dean and Professor of the School of Information and Professor in the Department of of City and Regional Planning at the University of California, Berkeley. The deadline for submitting an abstract/summary is October 26, 2007.
