⚁  6.1 Rationale for the Naming of Past Conferences.

An informal series of workshops have been offered over the years.
≻ There have also been two series of conferences and congresses; the first starting in 1970 was named the International Conference on the Theory of Positive Disintegration.

.

⚁  6.2 International Conference Series.

⚂ First–Laval University, Quebec (1970)

⚂ Second–Loyola College, Montreal (1972)

⚂ Third–Miami, Florida (1980)

⚂ Fourth–Warsaw (1987)

⚂ Fifth–Fort Lauderdale, Florida (2002)

.

⚁  6.3 Biennial Conference Series.

When we met in Keystone, CO, in 1994, the group decided to meet every two years, ideally alternating between a Canadian location and an American location.
≻ Hence, when I hosted the next conference, held in Alberta in 1996, I called it the Second Biennial Conference.

⚂ First–Keystone, Colorado (1994)

⚂ Second–Banff (Kananaskis) Alberta, (1996)

⚂ Third–Kendall College, Evanston, Illinois. (1998)

⚂ Mont-Tremblant, Quebec. (2000)

⚂ No conference in the biennial series was held this year, instead, Norbert Duda hosted the Fifth International Conference in Fort Lauderdale (2002).

.

⚁  6.4 The streams merged in 2002.

⚂ The International Conference Series and the Biennial Conference Series streams merged in 2002.

⚂  At the meeting in Fort Lauderdale (2002), the group decided that the two conference series should be merged. It was suggested that in the future:

⚃ International meetings be referred to as Congresses

⚃ National meetings could be referred to as Conferences and that;

⚃ Regional meetings be called Workshops.
