[ Electronic Presentation/Abstract and Conference Registration forms are 
attached.  Please note that SWA has offered to publish the 9th Mogollon 
Conference volume in HTML format on the SWA website.  Unlike a printed 
volume, an interactive publication does not need to be arranged in a linear 
fashion.  Electronic publication might allow more flexibility in 
presentation graphics and text generation.  Dr. Bettison will discuss this 
electronic publication concept with the conference participants. -- SASIG

Western New Mexico University Museum will host the 9th Mogollon Archaeology 
Conference on October 3-5, 1996 in Silver City, New Mexico.  Two full days

prior to making any flight arrangements.  Each shuttle service requires 24 
hour advance reservations.  For conference attendees flying into Albuquerque 
International Airport, plane service to Silver City may still be offered by 
Mesa Airlines in October. Please call them at (800)637-2247 for

submit paper titles and abstracts together in the order of presentation by

Publication of Papers --
The topic of publishing the conference papers will be discussed during the 
conference.  At the moment, the cost of publishing the papers appears to be 
prohibitive, but alternatives are being examined.  One suggestion is put all 
submitted papers on computer disk and make the papers available in an 
electronic format.  If you, your company, or institution would like to 
publish the conference  proceedings please contact Cynthia Bettison at (505) 
538-6386.  E-mail: .
