Call for papers--human remains

From: Emily Williams <emilyalden>

Call For Papers
Human Remains: Conservation Retrieval and Analysis
November 7-11, 1999
Williamsburg, VA.

This conference is being organized by the Departments of
Conservation and Archaeology at the Colonial Williamsburg
Foundation.  Conservators, archaeologists, curators,
bioarchaeologists and physical anthropologists are invited to submit
abstracts on such specific topics as field techniques, ethics,
display issues, legal issues, current research and scientific
analysis, new techniques/technologies and specific case studies.

Each of the disciplines invited to the conference, approaches human
remains from a different point and often at a different time from
the others--at times the techniques used by one discipline may impede
the work of another.  The aim of the conference is to serve as a
forum for discussion between the various professions and to foster
interdisciplinary understanding on matters relating to the need for
standardization and the potential for developing policies and
procedures relating to the removal, documentation and storage of
human remains.  Papers that address these issues are encouraged.
Also of special interest are papers describing cooperative efforts
between the various fields.

Paper submissions should not have been previously published.
Abstracts of up to 300 words should provide a clear summary of the
proposed paper to allow an evaluation of its quality and
significance.  Evaluation of submissions will be done by the
planning committee and an advisory board of specialists in
respective disciplines.  Papers presented at the conference will be
published in an edited post-conference publication.


December 30th, 1998- for abstract submission.
Acceptances will be mailed by March 15th 1999.

October 15th 1999--a publishable paper must be submitted if it is to
be included in the publication.
