Venues and Accommodations

The Hawai`i Convention Center combines the modern requirements of a state-of-the-art meeting facility with the beauty, comfort and culture that are uniquely Hawai`i. The site for the Center was selected for its close proximity to 10,000 committable hotel rooms. A limited amount of rooms are available at the EWC housing facilities, University of Hawai`i at Manoa, and various hotels in Waikiki and Ala Moana area, which are listed at the conference website.

Invitation to Submit “Signature” Works for 2010 EWC/EWCA Alumni Conference

East-West Center alumni are invited to submit one “signature work” –a book, a DVD, etc. — for display at the 2010 EWC/EWCA 50th Anniversary International Conference.

Only one submission will be accepted per EWC alum. The term “signature” is used to mean that this single  “signature work” is  the best example of the  professional work from its author.

Each submission should be accompanied by a one-page fact sheet on the submission, including title, medium, publisher/distributor (including the author, if applicable), and contact information for ordering or more information.

Submitted works will be prominently displayed during the conference. After the conference they will be donated to the UH’s Hamilton Library and the EWC’s library (no works will be returned).

Works should be mailed to:

Elisa Johnston
