Dear colleagues in NAAS and interested scholars worldwide,
The program of workshops for the NAAS conference in Oslo on May 27-29 is almost complete, as you will see below. Proposals for these workshops or that fit under the general theme of the conference can now be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Those individual proposals that have already been received or that are later accepted by the program committee which do not fit within one of the workshops listed here will be grouped into workshops by the committee. (Proposals from graduate students competing for the Øverland Prize may be to the general conference theme or to one of the workshops listed here.)
All proposals must not exceed one half page in length with one-inch margins in Times New Roman typeface, 12 cpi, and must be sent as attachments in Word 2003 or 2007 to e-mail messages to David Mauk by FEBRUARY 22. See the above e-address.
The plenary speakers chosen from each of the Nordic nations and specially invited keynote speakers from North America promise to make this conference a rich experience. This time our band of exceptional experts will also meet with graduate students and their advisors as thesis-writing mentors. The conference site with all the registration, lodgings, social activities, and program details will be coming very soon.
