Second, the CBMS series has historically distinguished itself in three ways. In your opinion, how important is it to maintain these features, or how might they be reinterpreted?- one speaker giving ten talks over five days, enabling a focus on a single and timely area of research by a leading practitioner- holding the conferences at regional universities to foster geographically proximate research communities- the production of a monograph to disseminate the insights of the conference more broadly
Third, what would be the characteristics of a re-envisioned CBMS Conference Series that would make these conferences unique?
Finally, to whom else should I be asking these questions?
