Theme Session Proposals
Program proposals for theme sessions must include:
- One e-mail or five paper copies of each proposal.
- Description of purpose, content, and format.
- Identification of those who have committed themselves to participate.
- Prospective size of audience.
- Special facilities or equipment, if any.
- Scheduling limitations, if any.
- Proposals for the sessions must be e-mailed by November 1, 1997; paper
versions must be sent via first class mail or other fast-delivery system,
postmarked by the same date.
Scholarly papers on communication provide the central focus of the annual
meeting. Papers should conform to these guidelines:
- Five paper copies of each paper must be submitted, and if possible,
one email version and one 3.5" diskette should also be submitted,
the latter specifying the word processing system used. (See also the requirements
of the division or interest group to which you are submitting your paper.)
Some divisions and special interest groups will accept extended abstracts
(a five-page minimum). Completed papers, however, enjoy a natural advantage
over abstracts in the competitive evaluation.
- Maximum length is 25 pages plus tables and references.
- A 150-word abstract, with title, must be submitted on a separate page.
- Submit cover page, including title of paper and complete names of all
authors with complete addresses, telephone numbers, and identification
of student authors. If proposing a panel or special session, submit names,
addresses, and telephone numbers of all participants and identify students.
The identity of authors must not be revealed in any other part of a paper
submitted for competitive review.
- A paper/panel may be submitted to only one division, special interest
group, or special session chair.
- Mail the paper or proposal first class and postmarked no later than
November 1, 1997.
- Papers and proposals must be sent via first class mail or other fast-delivery
system, postmarked by November 1, 1997; email versions must be transmitted
by the same date.
Papers should be submitted to the appropriate member of the Conference
Planning Committee (see Divisions and Interest Groups). Requests for audio-visual equipment
must accompany paper submissions or other proposals.
