> technologically advanced tools, such as PDAs.  EMA tools and methodology
> have enormous applications for the study of a host of health relevant
> behaviors (e.g., tobacco use/cessation, physical activity, diet,
> medication use).
> A major purpose of the conference is to bring together people from diverse
