CALL FOR PAPERS
The Fifth International Congress on Cyprus Studies will be held at the Eastern Mediterranean University on 14-15 April 2005. The aim of the Congress is to open up a discussion platform for the analysis, development, exchange and critique of ideas on Cyprus-related matters.
The Organising Committe will accept papers related to Cyprus issues in general, specifically related to Cypriot history, archeology, geography, language, literature, education, art, folklore, law, politics, economy, tourism, sports, and the like.
Presentations can be done both in English and Turkish.
Paper Presentations Single or joint authors can present their unique research paper in 20 minutes. Additional 10 minutes will be provided for discussion.
Poster Presentations Completed or on-going research can be presented in a poster to be displayed openly to the participants during the Congress days.
Round-Table Talks This session is for those who would like to discuss an issue in depth with a number of related speakers. Time allocated for the round-table talk is maximum 2 hours.
Deadline for submission of proposals is 15 June 2004. One participant can submit a maximum of two proposals: one single and one joint.
Proposals should include a minumum of 400, and maximum of 600 words. Proposals with less than 400 words will not be taken into consideration. Also, a biodata (of 100 words) should be attached.
The proposals should include information on the presentation topic, and clearly express the aim, scope, method and data analysis of the study. In round-table talk proposals, the participant who would like to chair the session should give information on the topic as stated above and should list the other speakers who would take part in the talk.
The participants can submit their proposals either through post, fax, or e-mail. Proposals attached as word documents to e-mail messages would be most appreciated.

Relevance to the congress theme(s), quality of the research and originality of the ideas will be considered when reviewing submissions. Upon notification of acceptance, the authors are expected to submit their full papers by 3 December 2004.
