PAMLA Activities and Deadlines

PAMLA Conference Program Online

Dear PAMLA conference presiding officers, chairs, presenters, and attendees,
Thank you all for your patience as we've worked to design the 2010 PAMLA conference program so as to meet everyone’s needs. With approximately 135 sessions and five hundred papers on a wide variety of fascinating topics, you simply don’t want to miss this conference.

Please Donate to the Graduate Student Scholarship Fund

If you are looking to do a good deed, think about making a donation (of anything from $5 to $1,000) to PAMLA's Graduate Student Scholarship Fund. You can easily do so by using our Acteva payment system, and your donation will help a deserving graduate student to attend our annual conference. This year, perhaps because of shrinking university support, we received a record-breaking number of scholarship applications, and we at PAMLA have always attempted to help our graduate student members with their professional development.

Register for the PAMLA 2010 Annual Meeting by September 15, 2010

The 2010 PAMLA Membership Fee and separate Conference Fee are both due by September 15, 2010. Presenters and session chairs who haven't paid both fees by this date will be removed from the conference program.

For more information on the fees and payment options, see PAMLA 2010 Registration.

Submissions Closed for PAMLA 2010

The online proposal submission form for PAMLA 2010 is now officially closed.  If you submitted a proposal, you should expect to hear from the session's Presiding Officer very soon.  If you haven't heard about your proposal's status, you may inquire directly with the Presiding Officer by using the "contact" link on the Sessions Topic page.
