Crystal City, VA, November 2001

The Preliminary Program of the 33rd National Convention of the American
Association for the Advancement of Slavic Studies (AAASS) is now available on the
AAASS Web site:
The program features 330 panels and roundtables in such varied disciplines as
literature, linguistics, history, geography, political science, economics, etc.

If you are a current AAASS member you will receive a printed version of
the preliminary program in your May NewsNet.

Please note that there might be minor changes to the program, such as the
time and/or room assignment for a panel or meeting, but no new panels or
roundtables will be added. The final program will be available in a
printed format at the convention and in electronic format at our Web site
shortly before the convention.

The Convention will be held from Thursday, November 15, through Sunday, November
18, 2001, in Crystal City (Arlington), Virginia, just minutes from Washington,
D.C. We will be split between two hotels for this convention:  the Hyatt Regency
Crystal City and the Washington National Airport Hilton in Crystal City. The
discount room rate for the convention participants is $120.00. The two hotels are
less than a ten-minute walk from each other, and shuttle buses will run between
both hotels. We will have sleeping rooms and meeting space in both hotels. The
Registration Desk and the Exhibit Hall will be at the HYATT. This is where we have
our main block of meeting space and sleeping rooms. For more information about
room reservation, please see our Web Site.

Registration for AAASS members is $65.00, for students $25.00, and for non-members
$75.00. Please note that on-site registration will be $15.00 higher--to avoid
paying the higher price, please register before October 7, 2001. You may download
