Submission Guidelines for the two Conferences

1. Authors can submit two abstracts-one individual and one joint.
These can be for one conference each or both for the same conference.

2. Five (5) copies of an anonymous, clearly titled one-page abstract
(single-spaced with 1 inch margin throughout, Times New Roman, 12 point font)
for review. There can be an additional page for references. 

3. One (1) copy of the same abstract with name and institutional
affiliation to include in the conference program.

4. For EACH author, an index card with the following information:
conference, title of paper, area or research, name, academic affiliation,
current/summer address, phone and fax number, e-mail, and audiovisual requests.

Abstracts submitted must represent original research. Presentations will be
minutes long, plus 10 minutes for questions. All authors who present papers at
the conference will be invited to contribute their papers to a refereed volume
of selected papers.

Deadline: All submissions must be received by May 1, 2001.
