This is a formal call for papers for the Conference on the Southwest 
Archaic, which will take place at the University of New Mexico in 
Albuquerque on October 24-26, 1996.  Each contributed paper will be allotted 
20 minutes.  In addition, submittal of proposals for posters is encouraged, 
particularly for topics that lend themselves to visual presentation. 
 Posters will follow the standard SAA format with regard to size, and will 
be set up on the first day of the conference for the duration.

As there is time for only a few papers, the organizing committee will 
review submitted proposals and select those considered most appropriate  to 
the conference.  The conference will emphasize three topics (1)  time-space 
systematics (including classification and chronology  building); (2) 
economic modeling (including subsistence, technology, and  mobility); and 
(3) explanation (including evolutionary ecology, use of analogy, and 
demography).

For your paper or poster to be considered, please submit an abstract or 
proposal of not more than 100 words to:  Patrick Hogan, Office of  Contract 
Archaeology, University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM 87131.

Other aspects of the conference will include invited papers, a keynote 
address by Bruce Smith, and workshops designed to foster cooperation and 
information exchange among persons involved in Archaic research.  To obtain 
a registration form, please contact David Phillips at (505) 254-1115 or by 
email dap@unm.edu.
