The organizing team at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln is pleased to announce a call for papers for the Second Annual Interdisciplinary Conference on Human Trafficking. A keynote speaker will be E. Benjamin Skinner, author of the recently-published A Crime So Monstrous. Anyone who has academic or professional work to present can submit an abstract of up to 300 words (no more) on the submission website.
Call Description: The presentations will normally be 20 minutes with some time for discussion. The organizing committee is willing to consider other formats, such as panel presentations. [They] are not seeking workshops, however, but presentations of facts, knowledge, ideas, methods, program evaluations, research agendas, and research needs.
The deadline for submission of papers and presentations is April 15, 2010. Submitters can expect notification of acceptance or rejection by May 25th, 2010. The committee will expect a commitment to attend by at least one of the accepted presenters, with a non-refundable deposit of $50, by July 15, 2010, for presenters to remain on the program. Authors will be expected to agree to a release of copyright, and allow the materials they present (in written, video, audio, or graphic form) to be made available on the conference website after the conference.
No paper proceedings will be published, but the presented materials will be available on Digital Commons (the web host for the proceedings) for a considerable time. If you have questions about presentations, contact Dr. Dwayne Ball.
