University of the West Indies, Cave Hill, May 19-22, 2004


The Caribbean Philosophical Association 2004 meeting will be on May 19th to May 22nd at the University of the West Indies at Cave Hill in Barbados.  The organizers had sent out several notices of the change of date in December 2003 and in early January 2004.   The reason for the change was the cricket matches between the UK and the West Indies had led to the unavailability of many hotel rooms and transportation.  In the months of January and February, the organizers suffered two tragic deaths that affected the organizersí monitoring of notices and correspondence.  We were unaware of several websites not changing their notices of the correct date.  We apologize for any inconvenience that has occurred due to misinformation.

For those who are able to attend the event in May, here is the current protocol.  The organizers should have a schedule of the panels and plenaries together by the end of the first week of April.  We have included a list of information on Barbados and the various air lines that fly there.  We encourage you to look into your travel documents early, since the requirements for foreign travel have been tightened under the Homeland Security Act.  If you are a United States citizen, that should pose no problem for travel to Barbados.  If you have a passport from one of the CARICOM countries, that also should not pose a problem.   If you are neither a U.S. citizen nor a citizen of a CARICOM country, you should check both with the Barbados consulate and the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service to make sure you have the right documents.   You should try to arrive in Barbados on May 18th or 19th, 2004 since we plan to begin with a reception on the 19th.

We encourage you to prepare a draft of your paper by the time of the conference because we are planning to have a referee committee select the best papers for publication.

We are very pleased that you will be participating in this historic event. As more detailed information develops, we will forward it to you as soon as possible.
