Each meeting at the convention has been assigned a number, roughly corresponding to the order in which the meetings occur. In these lists, the numbers in parentheses refer to the meeting numbers within the chronological listing in the Program. (meetings 1-72 take place on Wednesday, 27 Dec; meetings 74-424 take place on Thursday, 28 Dec.; meetings 426-706 take place on Friday, 29 Dec; and meetings 707-825 take place on Saturday, 30 Dec).
Forums and special events are open to registrants and nonregistrants alike; in addition, because MLA members have asked about the possibility of having undergraduate students attend other, more specialized meetings, the MLA Executive Council voted to select a number of meetings that will be open to the general public (registrants and nonregistrants are welcome to attend). Because of the demand for space, other meetings are not open to nonregistrants.
