Call For Papers

Fifth Annual Conference on the Adirondacks

The Adirondack Research Consortium and Paul Smithıs, the College of the 
Adirondacks, announce that the Fifth Annual Conference on the Adirondacks will 
be held on May 20, 21, and 22, 1998 at the Hotel Saranac in Saranac Lake, New 

One important goal of the Adirondack Research Consortium is to promote and 
facilitate research that may be directly applicable to policy-making in the 
Adirondack Park of New York State and its environs.  The transdisciplinary 
conference on the Adirondacks is an excellent vehicle for professionals and 
academics to report on their research, share ideas, discuss funding sources, 
develop research agendas, and stimulate further study of this important region.

Papers, posters, discussion panels, and workshops that explore the cultural, 
historic, and philosophical aspects of the Adirondacks, the contributions of the 
social and natural sciences, and the problems of public/private management of 
complex natural‹social systems are encouraged.

Graduate and undergraduate students are strongly encouraged to participate in 
the conference through both paper and poster presentations.

The conference emphasis is on networking and dialoge.  To that end, proposals for 
short and lively, 10-minute paper presentations that highlight your work, poster 
sessions, panel discussions, workshops, and other activities are invited and should 
be sent to the conference chair no later than January 31, 1998.

Each proposal should include:

        1.      Title of the presentation

        2.      Name and address of author(s).  In the case of multiple authors, the 
presenterıs name should be listed first.

        3.      The type of presentation proposed (paper, poster, panel, workshop, etc.)

        4.      A 200 to 300-word abstract of the presentation which will be published in 
the conference program.

        5.      The need for audio-visual equipment.  Poster session presentations will be on 
5ı x 7ı boards.
