CFP: Cliometric Society 50th Conference

Celebrating fifty years of Cliometrics, the 2011 Cliometrics Conference will be held on the weekend of Friday, May 20, through Sunday, May 22, 2011, at the University of Colorado at Boulder. The call for papers states:
The conference is designed to provide extensive discussion of new and innovative research in economic history. Typically, twelve papers are selected for presentation and discussion, and they are sent out to all conference participants in advance. Each presented paper is given an entire session, in which authors have five minutes to make an opening statement and the rest of the session is devoted to discussion among all conference participants. All participants are required to read all papers and to attend the entire conference. At least one author must be a member of the Cliometric Society.
    The deadline for paper proposals and requests to attend the meeting is Friday, January 14, 2011. Only a limited number of participants may be invited, so it is important to meet the deadlines. Those wishing to present a paper should provide an abstract and a 3-5 page summary of the proposed paper. The paper should be a work-in-progress and should not have been accepted for publication. In choosing papers and participants, priority will be given to those who have not attended recently or who have never attended. Graduate students wishing to attend should submit a paper proposal and a letter of recommendation from their dissertation advisor. Those wishing to present papers or attend the conference should provide their addresses, phone numbers, and e-mail addresses. Those whose papers are selected for presentation will be notified by February 14, 2011, and are expected to provide a completed draft of the paper in the proper format for the conference booklet no later than March 14, 2011.
    Applicants should submit their materials at http://www.eh.net/Clio/Conferences/prop11.html. In the event that submissions cannot be posted, please contact the Conference Administrator, Megan Jorgensen, at clioconf@colorado.edu.
