The Ninth Joint Meeting of North American and Bulgarian Scholars (BSA-BAN conference) will be held at the University of Oregon, in Eugene, on May 31-June 2, 2012.
Abstracts are being considered from BSA members in good standing. Individuals wishing to submit an abstract who are not BSA members may register for membership at http://foreninger.uio.no/bsa/applicat.htm before submitting an abstract.
The deadline for submission of paper abstracts is **September 15, 2011**. Papers may be in any discipline and on any topic related to Bulgaria. The abstract must not be longer than 300 words, and must not include the applicant’s name or otherwise clearly identify the author. The abstract is to be submitted in PDF form, attached to a cover e-mail giving the abstract title and the applicant’s full name and email address. The e-mail should be sent to the program committee at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicants will receive an acknowledgement of their submissions once they are received and will be informed of the decisions of their abstracts in early November.
A refereed web-published conference proceedings volume is being planned.
Further information on the conference, which will be regularly updated, is available at http://logos.uoregon.edu/bulgarian/home/index.php.
