Subject: October 1998 Mogollon Conference -- Call For Papers!

[ AzTeC / SWA SASIG ] :

From: Cynthia Bettison

The call for papers has been sent out snail mail to
those on our mailing list. Here is additional
information for those on SWA. Please let everyone
know that they need to either call or e-mail me to
get on the mailing list to obtain registration
information. If they wish to submit abstracts they
can send the snail mail or through e-mail. If they
have an e-mail address, I will confirm that their
abstract was received and listed in the program.
If not, traditionally those folks who have submitted
abstracts are not called nor is a reply mailed to
them. The Mogollon Archaeology Conference is run
similar to the Pecos Conference, it is too costly for
the hosts to mail out replies to everyone submitting
an abstract (I don't mind if people call, closer to
the conference time, to find out). Therefore, you find
out when you are giving your paper at the reception
on Thursday night. Of course, if we schedule people
to give papers on Friday morning, every attempt is
made to contact those individuals with their
presentation times. Many Thanks!

10th Mogollon Archaeology Conference
October 1-4, 1998


Western New Mexico University Museum will host the
10th Mogollon Archaeology Conference on October 1-4,
1998 in Silver City, New Mexico. Those individuals
interested in presenting papers are requested to
submit a title and abstract by September 1, 1998.

Papers or presentations may be made on any aspect of
archaeology within the Mogollon region. An attempt
will be made to group individual paper submissions
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 speakers on Friday evening, and a field trip
to selected Mimbres sites on Sunday, October 4.
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 and organizer. 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/organizer of
individuals who have not received this announcement
and should be added to the mailing list. Abstracts,
questions or suggestions should be addressed to the
program chair/organizer, Cynthia Ann Bettison,
