The Forum is designed to stimulate discussion and debate among presenters and the audience. Thus the program will consist of 15 papers only and participation will be limited to 150 attendees on site.
Papers should place the future of historic preservation, its theories, policies, or practice, within anticipated changes to the demographics, economics, environment, technology and education of the future. Abstracts,
no longer than one page, single-spaced, 12 pt. type, should be submitted electronically in Word no later than October 15, 2015. Submissions must identify the author’s name, professional title, affiliation, postal and e-mail addresses, and telephone number at the top of the page. The decision of the Papers Selection Committee will be announced to all submitters no later than November 15, 2015. Successful proposals will be chosen based upon how effectively they address the Forum’s focus, critical thinking, creativity, thoughtfulness, organization, and ability to stimulate discussion.
A draft of the complete paper, 12 pt., 12 – 15 single-spaced pages in Word (including footnotes and bibliography), is due no later than January 15, 2016. It will be reviewed by the Papers Selection Committee, and may be returned to the authors for additional work no later than February 1, 2016. An electronic copy of the final
paper, if revisions are requested, will be due no later than March 1, 2016. Copies of final papers will be made available to attendees at the conference. Since it is the intention of Goucher College to publish all papers in a proceeding after the conference, papers may not have been submitted for publication elsewhere and must include appropriate photo captions, credits and copyright, where necessary.
