  The "Horror" Area Chair of the Popular Culture Association
  invites interested scholars to submit papers on any aspect
  of horror in literature, cinema, television, or general culture
  for the 2007 PCA National Convention to be held at the
  Boston Marriott at Copley Place in Boston, MA.
  The conference runs from April 4-7.
  If you are interested in being a presenter, please send a
  100-250 word abstract, including title, through email or regular mail.
  You may send as a Word attachment or in the body of the email.
  You may also send a completed paper of not more than 15 minutes
  reading time. Please provide your contact information (name,
  institutional mailing address, phone numbers, and email) as well.
  If you would like to propose a panel of 4 speakers each,
  please include the following:
  --Panel title
  --Name and contact information for the Panel Chair
  --Titles and abstracts of each paper
  --Contact information for each presenter
  You may also propose a discussion panel of between 4-6 participants.
  All presenters must be members of the PCA and must register
  for the conference. Membership and registration forms will be
  sent to you upon acceptance of your presentation.
  Acceptance of your paper obligates you to present the paper
  at the conference. Multiple submissions to different areas are
  not allowed. You must also be present at the conference to read
  your own paper—no "readings by proxy" are allowed.
  You are highly encouraged to enhance your presentation
  through audio-visuals. Each conference room will be equipped
  with a DVD player and monitor. No other equipment is available.
  Please know that specially produced or "burnt" DVDs may prove to
  be incompatible in format with the provided DVD players. However,
  we hope to have TVs with VGA input and cables, so please
  feel free to bring your laptop computer.
  If you have specific days and times at which you would like to present, please let me know at the time of submission. I will forward your request to the schedulers. Please be aware that not all requests can be honored.
  The deadline for submission of abstracts and/or papers is NOVEMBER 1, 2006.
  Please send all abstracts, papers, and queries to the below address:
