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 abstract@bu.edu with "Symposium proposal” indicated in the subject line. Please limit symposium proposals to 1000 words or fewer.

DEADLINE. Same as for abstracts, 8:00 PM EST, May 15, 2013.

Decisions on symposia will be made by June, so that organization can begin, with the goal
of having all participants confirmed by July.
