Those individuals interested in presenting papers are requested to submit a title and abstract by August 1, 1996. Papers or presentations may be made on any aspect of archaeology within the Mogollon region. An attempt will be made to group individual paper submisions according to topical, methodological, or theoretical content, rather than geographical area, to enhance interaction and discussion among researchers working in different portions of the Mogollon region. Mini-symposia (no more than 5 to 6 papers) can be submitted, however due to time constraints only two to four mini-symposia will be selected. Events tentatively planned include a reception at the university museum on Thursday, a banquet and guest speaker on Friday evening, and a field trip to selected Mimbres sites on Sunday, October 6. The field trip to selected Mimbres sites will occur if there is sufficient interest. If you would be interested in such a trip or have suggestions about which sites you would like to visit, please contact the program chair. Information regarding registration fees, cost of conference publication, lodging, the banquet, and the field trip will be provided in a subsequent mailing. Please notify the program chair of individuals who have not received this announcement and who should be added to the mailing list. Abstracts, questions, or suggestions should be addressed to the program chair, Cynthia Ann Bettison, Director, Western New Mexico University Museum, P.O. Box 680, Silver City, New Mexico, 88061.
