Since [ SWA is ] such a great clearing house for information, a few of us 
here at UNM were hoping [SWA] could help us get the information out 
regarding a session at the SAA's in Seattle, 1998, which we are planning. 
 The session focuses on advanced technology in the service of archaeological 
analyses. We asked Ron Bishop if he would be interested in chairing the 
session, he answered affirmatively. Then we contacted MURR, Jim Cogswell 
also has data to present in a paper. Patty Crown is contemplating acting as 
discussant. We have asked Ron Loehman, material scientist co-director of the 
Advanced Materials Lab in Albuquerque to be a discussant also. His expertise 
is ceramics as well.  We would like to get the word out to as many people as 
possible so that they can participate if they wish. Topics do not have to be 
limited to ceramic analysis, could be lithics or SEM analysis of fibers / 
pollen / phytoliths etc.  Abstracts need to be sent via e-mail to  by August 27 so that we can get the package together to 
send to the SAA organization by Sept. 3. Thanks, Nancy Olsen, Anthro. Dept.,
