A conference titled The Life, Ideas and Enduring Legacy of Dr. Albert Schweitzer is scheduled for Oct. 28–29, 2005, at Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Conn. Jane Goodall, the world’s foremost authority on chimpanzees and a United Nations ambassador for peace, will deliver the keynote address. Deadline for submissions for papers is April 15, 2005.
Submissions on the topics of theology, environment, health, peace and humanitarian values are welcome, as are papers concerning the concept of “reverence for life,” the idea that Dr. Schweitzer felt was his main contribution to the world.

Proposals should include a 250-word abstract and a brief CV. There are plans to publish a selection of papers afterward.
