We are happy to announce that the Call for Papers and Sessions for ASOR’s 2009 Annual Meeting is now on ASORâ€™s web site (link). This year’s meeting will be held at the Astor Crowne Plaza in New Orleans from November 18-21, and you can find full information about registration, travel, and accommodations on ASORâ€™s web site (link). We encourage you all to pre-register and book your rooms today.
The Annual Program Committee has worked hard to develop a diverse offering of sessions. We are still able and eager to accommodate some new sessions, so if you have a new session that you would like to propose, please do so. The deadline for new session proposals is Friday, February 6, 2009. For those who would like to present papers, make sure to review the â€œList of Sessions for 2009â€ (check again after February 15 for newly approved sessions that will be posted then) and begin submitting your abstracts for review and inclusion in the 2009 annual meeting. The deadline for submission of abstracts is Sunday, March 1, 2009.
On behalf of Elise A. Friedland and Andrew M. Smith II, this year’s Program Committee Co-Chairs, I thank you for considering becoming a part of the academic program. Please do not hesitate to contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) should you have any questions or comments. I look forward to seeing you this November in New Orleans.
