Proposals for individual papers should include an abstract of no more than 500 words, a brief CV, postal and email addresses, and telephone and fax numbers. Panel proposals should also suggest a title and a panel chair. Graduate students and non-academic affiliates are welcome. Graduate students may qualify for reduced registration fees.

Submissions imply that at least one author will register for the conference and be present at the time designated in the conference program.

The deadline for submission is January 7th, 2007.
