ISPO Caribbean Meeting - Curaçao
REPORT ISPO2000 CONGRESS (March 2000)John Michael's Corner: April 2000
Info received from www.oandp.com
The desert island of Curaçao, located just off the coast of Venezuala, was the site for the second international congress hosted by the Latin American ISPO societies. Excellent simultaneous translations made it possible to freely exchange information and ideas with colleagues from this region despite my own monolingual limitations, although the concentration required to follow rapid-fire translation makes such meetings somewhat fatiguing. Based on the format from the excellent Pacific Rim meetings, the scientific sessions ran from 8AM to 1PM each day, leaving the afternoon and evenings free to learn more about the local culture.
