Super sentencing commission soiree

Anyone with an interest in sentencing, and especially the work of sentencing commissions, ought to make haste to Philadelphia for the 2006 Conference of the National Association of Sentencing Commissions (NASC).  Starting next Sunday, the Conference is entitled "Keystone of Sentencing: Balancing Fairness and Costs," and the particulars are detailed in this schedule. The latest NASC newsletter, available here, has more information about the conference (and also discusses recent work of some state sentencing commissions).

Though Blakely and Booker talk will surely arise during the NASC conference, the structure and agenda of the event ensures that a broad range of other important sentencing reform issues take center stage.  I am planning to attend the entire NASC conference, and I have the honor of moderating a Monday panel on Federalism & Sentencing.  I am looking forward to every part of the terrific event, and I might even try to do a little live blogging if the tech gods are friendly.
