I received the following Call for Papers [CFP] in my email today courtesy of the H-GRAD email list. The due date for conference proposals is Monday, August 22, 2011. There is plenty of time to prepare a manuscript and abstract for submission to the November conference. Considering the tight budgets in Graduate Departments nationwide, I would start planning now if you are considering on presenting a paper or attending the conference.
