Abstract Submission: We invite abstracts describing papers or panels that you intend to present at the AIB-LAT Annual Meeting in 2012. Paper presentation abstracts should be between 500 and 800 words. For paper abstracts, please do not include personal identifying information in the abstract. This information (e.g., name of author(s), email address, institution, mailing address, etc.) will be entered separately in the paper review system. All paper abstracts will be subject to a double blind peer review process.

The abstract submission for panel presentations should include the following: title of the panel, names of panelists, institutions, a 500-800 word abstract describing the overall panel objective(s), and a 500-800 word abstract for each paper or presentation included in the symposium. Panel proposals will be subject to a single blind peer review process since a portion of the decision process will relate to the qualifications of the panelists.
