First Paragraph

The TOS Pacific Basin Meeting in Honolulu, Hawaii, July 18–22, 1994, was an experiment. It was the first meeting TOS has held that was intended to focus on a specific scientific topic. It was arranged differently, through conveners for each of the sub-themes, and was overtly intended to be small (250–300 attendees) so that focus and discussion would be maximized. An important part of the experiment was that the meeting had some concurrent sessions, instead of the traditional TOS format of plenary sessions plus poster sessions.
