2013 Conference Schedule

Please note that due to a new hotel and conference venue, the "optional trips" of the past (to the Museum of Islamic Art and to the souk) will no longer be offered. The conference organizers and the staff at Retaj Al Rayyan will be happy to assist in transportation booking for groups that wish to tour around the city. Visit our "Doha FAQ" for ideas on what to do in Doha. The visit to Georgetown's campus in Education City will still take place on Friday evening.
