WAAC Annual Meeting
2004 Call for Papers

Annual Conference: October 2-4, 2004, Santa Fe, New Mexico
Deadline for Abstracts:  August 6, 2004 (working ideas sooner,

Presentations can be full length (approx. 20 minutes or so) or
shorter (5-10 minutes) for tip sessions or quick updates.
Presentation posters also will be considered.

The first day of talks may concentrate on the conservation of sites,
and sacred places or Native American collections - not necessarily
specific to the American Southwest region.  The second two days will
focus on the work of our members and affiliates in all categories of
material conservation and planning.

While formal abstracts are due in August, we prefer to hear from you
now (or as soon as possible) if you are thinking of proposing a
presentation. Please send your ideas or abstracts to two members of
the WAAC Board--Molly Lambert, (WAAC President and conference
organizer) and one other member of the Program Committee listed
below, according to the most appropriate topic.

Abstracts meeting the August 2, 2004 deadline should include: your
name and the name of any other authors, contact person information
(name, phone, email, address), the title of your proposed
presentation or paper, length of time you'll need to make the
presentation and what kind of projection or electronic equipment you
may need.

Attendance at this meeting is expected to be from 100-150 people.
This means that approximately 500 members will have only the
abstract you submit to tell them what you talked about when they
read the Presentation Summaries in the January 2005 issue of the
WAAC Newsletter.  Therefore, your abstract should give the reader
basic, useful and interesting information from your talk.  As is
custom, some papers will be published in the 2005 Newsletter.

All presenters must register for the conference.  A one-day
registration is sufficient if you will be attending just the day of
your presentation.  Also, please provide a brief biography so that
we can compile introductions for each speaker ahead of time.
