Reminder: CFP for ISHPSSB 2011

Moderator's note: Although you've probably seen our previous CFPs, please note that the instructions below address some frequently asked questions about the submission process that may not have been apparent before.

The deadline for submitting proposals for ISHPSSB 2011 in Salt Lake City is February 28.

For complete meeting details, go to:
Because we are using a single system that handles both the abstract submissions and the registration, you'll need to actually start (but not necessarily finish) registering for the conference.  As you do so, you'll be given the opportunity to submit an abstract for a paper or poster, or papers for a session that you are organizing.
There are no guidelines given for submission of abstracts.  It is entirely open-ended so as to allow for the many different disciplinary norms represented by ISHPSSB.  A paragraph of 4-6 sentences describing your talk would be plenty, but feel free to make it longer if you need/want it to be--the system will accept up to 2000 characters.  A longer or a shorter abstract will not increase or decrease your chances of it being accepted. However, if you are submitting a stand alone paper (rather than a session) a more detailed abstract will make it easier for us to fit it into the appropriate session.

The link to get into the registration system directly is:
