SHOT 2012
Preliminary Program

Once again this year, there is an extensive program of meetings, activities, and social events supplementing the more than fifty academic sessions. Unless otherwise stated, all events will take place in the Kilen Building on the campus of the Copenhagen Business School. Additional program information will be added as it becomes available--so please check back.

Please note that since hotels in Copenhagen include breakfast in their room rates, SHOT will NOT be providing continental breakfast on Friday and Saturday at the meeting.

For your convenience, in addition to the listings below, there is also a PDF version of the preliminary program.
