The organizing committee requests that the following schedule be followed:
Abstract submission by February 28th.
Abstract acceptation by March 31th after a referee procedure.
Full paper submission by April 30th.
Full paper acceptation by May 31th after a referee procedure.
Final paper delivery by June 30th.
Please submit abstracts for proposed papers in WORD format to email@example.com. Abstract length should be about 400 to 600 words in length, which is about one page. Please submit them as soon as possible for consideration. The above time limit are needed for the reviewers to read, discuss, and select papers to be presented at the conference, and to allow time to finalize the schedule and print the conference booklets. This schedule should also allow enough time for people to make their travel plans to come to the conference.
There will probably be many more papers submitted to the conference than can be given time for presentation. At the Shroud conference in St. Louis in October of 2014, only about half of the abstracts submitted were chosen for presentation. Selection of papers for the Shroud conference in 2017 will be guided by the following priorities:
Examples of this last category would include the following:
Papers on the Sudarium of Oviedo will also be considered for the conference, according to the above criteria, because of its apparent relationship to the Shroud of Turin. If you would like to discuss ideas regarding potential papers or other issues, please contact Bob Rucker ( firstname.lastname@example.org or 509-375-4770 in the US).
