Call for Papers

Members of the Society are hereby invited to submit communications to be presented at the 229th Meeting, which will be held in Chicago, IL, March 15 – March 18, 2019.

The deadline for submission of abstracts is October 15, 2018. The Program Committee will not accept abstracts submitted by nonmembers or by members who have not paid 2019 membership dues and pre-registration fees in full or who neglect to submit abstracts by the deadline.

Sectional Committee Chairs should be contacted directly only in the matter of organizing special panels.

Failure to present a paper that has been accepted on the Program creates a very poor impression of the Society and is particularly discourteous to those members who may have traveled great distances just to hear certain communications. Please respond to the Call for Papers only if you indeed plan to attend the Meeting.

Abstracts of no more than 300 words — to be submitted electronically below — should cover the following points: (a) the precise topic treated, (b) your exact contribution to the problem, (c) its relationship to previous scholarship on the topic, (d) specific conclusions. Please also keep in mind that abstracts of papers accepted for presentation will appear in the published abstracts exactly as they have been submitted. For this reason, please transliterate non-Latin script as non-Latin script cannot be accommodated in the published abstracts.
