The 2018 Fair:

CWOSE 2018 --> 3 March, 2018,

CWOSE will be held in Gerlinger Hall and Annex on the main UO Campus in Eugene, Oregon. The following web address has links to campus maps:  http://www.uoregon.edu/maps

It will be assumed that the location of University of Oregon does not need to be described.  Parking Logistics and a detailed schedule will be provided to participants.

Dr. Karen Sprague (University of Oregon), Dr. Michael Rockow (Leslie MS) and Dr. David Hackleman (Oregon State University) are co-Directing CWOSE. 


This year, REGISTRATION is $5.00 per participant for CWOSE.  This is due to a significant contribution by the University of Oregon.  A fund is available to aid in payment of the Registration fee if it is a constraining factor in participation.
