---------------------------

The Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Washington invites proposals from
potential speakers for the 23rd IAJGS International Conference on Jewish
Genealogy. The conference will be held >from July 20 to 25, 2003, at the JW
Marriott Hotel in Washington D.C. Deadline for submission of proposals is
DECEMBER 31, 2002. Because of the extensive archival resources and tourist
attractions in the Washington area, we expect record attendance at this
conference. It is therefore important for attendees and speakers to plan
early.

Presentation proposals must include the following six sections. If you
submit more than one proposal, please use a separate page for each
submission.

1. Name, Title, Organizational Affiliation, Address, Telephone, and
E-mail address for each presenter
2. Presentation Title
3. 100 word description of the presentation to be used in the Seminar
Program Syllabus, CD-ROM and conference website
4. 50 - 100 word bio of the speaker to be used in the Seminar Program
Syllabus, CD-ROM and conference website
5. A more extensive description, up to 500 words, describing the
content of the presentation, identifying whether the presentation is geared
to beginner or intermediate/advanced genealogists, and a description of the
speaker's prior lecture experience, with emphasis on Jewish genealogy. This
information will assist the program committee to decide on the merits of the
presentation.
6. Audio-video and/or computer equipment required for the presentation

The presenters selected will receive free registration at the conference.
All presenters invited to the conference must agree to submit a presentation
summary, 14 pages in length (special programs may require additional
material). Upon acceptance of the proposal, we will specify a date for
submitting the presentation summary. The summary materials will be included
in the conference syllabus and CD-ROM as resource for conference attendees.
Presentations will also be professionally tape-recorded.

Each presentation will be scheduled for a 1-hour time slot followed by a
15-minute question and answer period (75 minutes total time). We will
attempt to honor requests to schedule presentations on a date and time
convenient to the presenter, but we cannot guarantee a specific schedule.

Proposals should be sent to Sheri Meisel, Conference Co-Chair, at
<smeisel@umd.edu> or 7207 Garland Avenue, Takoma Park, Maryland, 20912, USA.
We prefer that e-mail submissions be formatted for use by Microsoft Word.
