Participants were: Warren Bareiss, Patrick Belanger, Robert Craig, Stephen Croucher, Melissa Curtin, William Davie, Juana Du, Zhou Feng, Kristine Fitch, Mahmoud Galander, Shiv Ganesh, Nazan Haydari, Evelyn Ho, Georgeta Hodis, Prue Holmes, Priya Kapoor, Michael Kent, Martin Montgomery, Mary Nguyen, Todd Sandel, Saskia Witteborn, Jock Wong, and Kaibin Xu.

The Preconference was another follow-up activity resulting from the NCA Summer Conference on Intercultural Dialogue that led to the creation of this Center. Videos of several presentations were made, and may be made available shortly.
