Dear Colleagues,

Publishing a conference paper in a refereed journal is rarely the immediate
outcome of a conference presentation; however, this call for papers is also
a call for such scholarly articles.


Please read the email below, visit the website listed below, and if you
still have questions, feel free to contact me directly.


Do pass this call on by word of mouth and via your other list-serves.


Finally, encourage your Ph.D students to submit abstracts -- the Zora forum
is an excellent source of both intellectual support and constructive
