The EuroCrim 2015 conference kicks off tomorrow evening and there are tons of panels that might be of interest to IASOC members. I have created a cheat sheet with panels that are organized crime/ illicit enterprise related which can be downloaded here. If I have missed your panel, please email me and I'll update the list.
Also, if you would like me to audio record your panel, I can do so as I have brought a recorder. I will post the recordings on the IASOC website so others can hear them and can post your slides if you like. First come first serve, though if you record your own panel yourself, I would likewise be happy to host the content on the IASOC website.
Otherwise, I'll be around for the whole conference, so feel free to stop me an say hello.
American Society of Criminology Booth
I am pleased to announce that IASOC will have a booth at this year's ASC in Washington D.C. The booth will be there in order to let folks know about IASOC and we will have a rotation of people manning it. However, we don't want to end there. We are also wanting to have a series of events at the booth. For instance, if you have a book or published journal article on organized crime, we would love for you to spend a couple of hours at the booth with some copies of your article or book for people to meet you and engage with you. Perhaps you can feel like a rock star and even sign a few copies.
If you are interested in having an event at the booth, or taking a couple of hours to man it, please let me know by email. I will then be in touch to create a schedule once I have gauged interest. The more activities we have there, the better we can grow the organization and encourage new students of Organized Crime and Illicit Enterprise to join our ranks.
The website is nearing completion. I hope to have a working beta site up in about six weeks. Once I have debugged it, then memberships will become available. I will be writing several of you personally to help write abstracts about your specific field of study in order to inform those who are curious about organized crime and illegal enterprise, including the general public, law enforcement, journalists, students, and scholars. Please be on the look out for that later this month. Until the website it announced, please continue using the temporary site hosted at Judicalis.org.
