August 13th to 18th.
We have received a great number of submissions for new and varied
presentations and look forward to receiving even more. If you are
planning to make a submission, please note that today is one-month mark
before the December 1st deadline for responding to our Call for Papers.

The decision to accept a submission will be heavily weighted toward
presentations not given at previous IAJGS Conferences, that provide
specific research methodology and that include specific information
for researchers to replicate the success of the presenter in acquiring
information. Sessions will be one hour and fifteen minutes, with the
last 15 minutes reserved for questions and answers.
Proposal Deadline - December 1, 2005. Speakers will be notified no later
than February 1, 2006. Handout material/resource material, due March 1,
