(The deadline for submission is September 20; see later deadline for High School Papers below). Please prepare a title and abstract (200 - 400 words) summarizing your paper. Because of the interdisciplinary nature of the conference, presentations vary according to discipline. Presenters may read their paper and/or present a powerpoint presentation. The presentation time is typically 20 minutes, though longer time slots may be available depending on the proposal. Please indicate in your abstract if you plan on following a different model (for example, a panel discussion) of if your presentation requires a longer time slot.
