Call for Papers
CENTRAL EURASIAN STUDIES SOCIETY (CESS)
Fourth Annual Conference (2003)

October 2-5, 2003
Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts, U.S.A.

The Central Eurasian Studies Society (CESS) invites panel and paper
proposals for the Fourth CESS Annual Conference, October 2-5, 2003, in
Cambridge, Massachusetts.  The event will be held at Harvard University,
hosted by the Program on Central Asia and the Caucasus at Harvard's Davis
Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies.

Panel and paper topics relating to all aspects of humanities and social
science scholarship on Central Eurasia are welcome.  The geographic domain
of Central Eurasia extends from the Black Sea and Iranian Plateau to
Mongolia and Siberia, including the Caucasus, Crimea, Middle Volga,
Afghanistan, Tibet, and Central and Inner Asia.

Please see the conference website
(http://cess.fas.harvard.edu/CESS_Conference.html), or contact us for full
conference information and proposal submission requirements (e-mail:
[log in to unmask]).

Submissions of pre-organized panels are strongly encouraged and will be
given some preference in the selection process.  Individual papers are also
welcome and will be assigned by the program committee to an appropriate
panel with a chair and discussant.  We also welcome attendees who do not
wish to participate in a panel (see the Pre-registration Form on the
conference website).


SUBMISSION OF PROPOSALS

The Conference Committee accepts only electronic submissions -- either by
webform or by e-mail form in the case of those who don't have web access.
Please contact us to receive the e-mail submission forms in MS Word or PDF
format (please specify your preference).

The following information is required for submissions; we suggest that you
prepare the text before accessing the website so you can simply paste the
information into the form:

For paper presenters: 1) Name, 2) Current institutional affiliation,
3) Title/position, 4) E-mail, 5) Postal address, 6) Telephone, 7) Fax,
8) Title of Paper, 9) Abstract of Paper (a summary of the paper not exceeding
200 words), 10) Any audio-visual equipment requests (specify: overhead
projector, slide project, video player), 11) A one-page CV which contains
educational background and other information which the panel chair may
require for introductions.  If you are accepted and participate in the
conference, your abstract will be published, so please write it carefully to
avoid errors and ensure that it conforms with the criteria for a good
abstract (see Guidelines for Writing Abstracts on the conference website).

For panels: Proposals may be submitted for regular panels (with presentation
of scholarly papers) and roundtables (featuring discussion of a current
topic in the field).

Regular Panels: In addition to the information for paper presenters (as
indicated above), the following are also required: a) a panel title, and
b) name, affiliation, and contact information of the panel chair and
discussant.  Panels should have four or five paper presenters, a chair, and
a discussant.  The program committee can accept panel submissions which lack
up to two of these; the other panel participants will be filled in as
necessary.  Pre-organized panels should be thematically coherent and may be
organized by a scholarly organization (though this is not required).

Roundtable Panels: A roundtable has four to six presenters and a
chair/moderator.  For roundtable proposals, the organizer must provide a
paragraph describing the panel objectives and providing justification for
use of the roundtable format.  The same information is required of each
participant as for regular panels with the exception that abstracts are not
required.

Best Paper Award: There will be an award in the amount of $500 given to the
best graduate student conference paper submitted to the Awards Committee for
consideration.  See the CESS awards webpage for details
(http://cess.fas.harvard.edu/CESS_Awards.html), or contact the Awards
Committee Chair, Prof. Gregory Gleason <[log in to unmask]>.

Program Limitations: No participant may present more than one paper at the
conference.  Without special justification, the program committee will not
schedule any individual to appear on more than two panels as a paper
presenter or discussant.

REGISTRATION

Membership in CESS is not required for participation in the Annual

you to reduced conference registration fees.  See the CESS Membership Form
for details: http://cess.fas.harvard.edu/CESS_Membership.html

Payment of registration fees is required for all attending the conference,
as follows:

Regular fee members*:          $55 (pre-registration) or $65 (at conference)
Reduced fee members**:         $35 (pre-registration) or $45 (at conference)
Non-members:                   $70 (pre-registration) or $80 (at conference)

For methods of payment, see the Proposal Submission Form on the conference
website.

NOTE: CESS does not have funds to support the costs of conference
participation.  Participants must obtain their own funding (some information
is available on the Supplementary Conference Information page of the website).


TRAVEL AND ACCOMMODATIONS

Cambridge, Massachusetts, is near the heart of Greater Boston -- just across
the Charles River from downtown Boston.  Boston and Cambridge/Harvard are
renowned for their historic character, and October is the finest time to
visit.  Detailed travel information is available on the Supplementary
Conference Information page of the website.

PLEASE NOTE: Moderately priced accommodations in the Cambridge area can be
hard to find as the date approaches.  For this reason, it is **VERY
IMPORTANT** that you reserve your accommodations early.  We have reserved
blocks of rooms in some of the nearby hotels, though these can be expected
be taken quickly, especially at the less expensive places.  On the
Supplementary Conference Information page of the website, we provide
information on many available options for accommodations.
