New this Year: Symposium Proposals:

We are also soliciting proposals for a 90-minute symposium on a common theme on any topic likely to be of broad interest to the conference attendees. The symposium format is open, but has frequently included 2-3 speakers presenting research from differing angles on a common theme. We anticipate including two such symposia in the schedule, one being the Saturday lunchtime symposium, the other closing the conference on Sunday. Proposals should include a list of potential participants and a specification of the format, and should name at least one organizer who will be able to work with the BUCLD organizing committee in setting up the symposium and lining up participants. Submissions can be sent by email to
