The IAJGS 2018 Warsaw Conference is delighted to announce that the
Call-for-Papers (Abstract Proposal System) will be open for submittals
from 15 Nov 2017 through 31 Dec 2017. We will issue a formalannouncement when the actual opening occurs, but here is a brief
description of the types of presentations that we will be looking for:
1) Presentations: A one-hour timeslot dedicated to about 45
minutes of lecture with about 15 minutes of question & answers, with
PowerPoint, film or other illustrative component.
2) Short Presentations: A 30-minute timeslot dedicated to a
20-minute presentation on a novel genealogy research project that you
are working on that could benefit others: a slide show of your visit
to a shtetl; or the explanation of how you accomplished a genealogy
special find (like how you found your grandparents' marriage record
when everyone said it couldn't be done).
Note: It may be preferable for a BOF (Birds of a Feather Group) to
forgo having a BOF meeting this summer and instead use this 30-minute
format for a meeting of Landsleit to share a previous or prepare for
an upcoming shtetl trip.
3) Computer Workshop: A 2-hour program dedicated to a guided
tour of and training on how to use a website, function or software
application on a computer.
4) Panel Discussion: A one-hour timeslot dedicated to combining
several people or topics in an interactive format between panelists,
such as a discussion among experts in a related field.
This conference will take place in Warsaw; however, the presentations
most sought after might be focused on Resources, Empires, Jewish
Culture/History and Keepers of Jewish Communal Memory or Historic
Sites in Central and Eastern Europe.
The Program Committee will accept approximately 120 one-hour
lectures/panels and approximately 50 short presentations. The Abstract
Proposal System will be linked to the Conference home page
when the time comes. Stay tuned!
