General information
We welcome and encourage the participation of students, faculty, educators, and community members in these important conversations. Proposals should address the theme of the conference from any disciplinary, cross-disciplinary, or trans-disciplinary perspective. We invite scholarly work from a variety of traditional academic disciplines and approaches. Proposals from graduate students and professionals/practitioners are encouraged. Proposals for individual papers, panels, symposiums, film/documentary screenings, posters and other creative endeavours that address the conference theme are solicited.

Specific guidelines for contributors
Proposals for panels, symposia and alternative formats should not exceed 1000 words. Proposals for individual papers should not exceed 200 words. Proposals will be judged on quality of scholarship, relevance to the conference theme, and likely interest to audience. A program committee will evaluate proposals in a blind review process. The proposals should consist of a narrative description of the presentation and should describe its relationship to the conference theme. The descriptions should not contain the names of the presenters. Names of the presenters, chair, and participants should be sent on a separate sheet, and should include contact information and institutional affiliation, if applicable.
Individual Papers
Presenters of Individual papers will have approximately 20 minutes to present their work.
A proposal for a symposium should provide information on the general theme, and describe each presentation, including a title for each. Symposiums will have a time limit of 90 minutes including time for a discussant, if applicable. Time should be allocated for audience participation.
Panel presentations are more flexible in that panellists could discuss a topic as a group rather than giving individual papers. Panel proposal should describe the session and its significance. Panels will be scheduled for 90 minutes, and must include time for audience participation.
Alternative Presentations
Proposals for alternative presentations such as films, documentaries, performances, posters or other creative endeavours will be accepted and judged on the basis of their relationship to the theme, and the quality of the proposal. Alternative presentations will have 90 minute time blocks and should also allow for audience participation.

Submission of proposals
Proposals should be submitted via e-mail on the submission form not later than 10 July 2010 to: drustvo.antropologov@guest.arnes.si. For additional information contact Gregor Starc, gregor.starc@guest.arnes.si. The potential presenters will be informed about the acceptance of their proposals as they are processed but not later than 15 July 2010.

The conference programme committee will choose the best manuscripts to be published in the Slovenian Anthropology Society’s journal Anthropological Notebooks. The authors who wish to apply for the publishing of their manuscripts in Anthropological Notebooks should send the completed manuscript by September 1, 2010 by e-mail to the contacting address. The chosen manuscripts will undergo blind peer review by two scholars, specialised in the field. Authors should follow the instructions for authors, published on the journal’s web page: 

The abstracts of the presented papers and the descriptions of alternative presentations will be published in the Book of abstracts.
