CALL FOR STUDENT PAPERS

call for papersPi Gamma Mu student members are encouraged to submit papers for consideration for presentation at the triennial international convention.  All students who have their proposals accepted will receive some funding from Pi Gamma Mu (either a one night's stay at the convention hotel or "free" conference registration). Now is the time to plan your trip; now is the time to decide to submit a research paper; now is the time to request support from your local institution for travel funds. 

Completed papers should be no longer than 25 pages, including references. They need to be submitted via E-mail to Dr. Charles W. Hartwig, chancellor of the South/Southwest Region of Pi Gamma Mu ([email protected]), with a "cc" to the Convention Committee chair, Dr. Jean C. Karlen ([email protected]).  Students are to attach their research papers as a Microsoft Word document.  Other word-processing software is unacceptable.  Proposals must be received by the chair of the Committee of Readers and the chair of the Convention Committee no later than September 4, 2014. Early proposals are most welcome.

There is a "blind" review process for paper submissions which will be read by a three-member Committee of Readers.  Students are to include personal information (name, title, chapter, school, and chapter sponsor, plus contact information for the student and the Pi Gamma Mu chapter sponsor) only on the title page and the E-mail sent with their entry.  Contact information should include both E-mail addresses and phone numbers.

Up to 12 student members whose proposals are accepted will present their papers as a formal 10- to 15-minute oral paper presentation at the international convention. These students will receive one night's lodging at the convention hotel. Other students who have their papers accepted will be invited to present their work in a student poster session and will have their conference registration fee waived. Regardless of the final presentation format, we are encouraging students to submit their work and look forward to learning about the research that Pi Gamma Mu members have completed.

The convention Web site will be available soon.  Please check it for convention updates, forms, etc.  

Please feel free to contact Dr. Hartwig with any questions you may have.

See you in Charleston!
