The panel on nomadism will take place between 8:00-10:15 on Friday 2 April 2004 in room 520C&F of the Palais des Congrès in Montreal (Canada). The program will be as announced on this website. The standard audio-visual equipment provided include a slide projector and an over-head projector but a data-projector, to enable PowerPoint presentations, will also be made available. 80-slide carrousels are recommended, to prevent jamming, and all PowerPoint presentations will be loaded onto one lap-top, well ahead of the program, to allow a swift transition between the speakers.

Presentations are to be no longer than 15 minutes. Please be aware that this time will have to be strictly enforced. This will therefore allow the participants to give no more than an overview of their arguments. All are invited to present a more detailed discussion in their contribution for the volume on nomadism which is scheduled to appear as the fourth Cotsen Advanced Seminar. Contributions that have been presented in Montreal should preferably be in before Saturday 19 June 2004.

Additional information on this panel, and the conference as a whole, can be found at the website of the SAA. Queries can be send to us at <> or directly to the SAA:
   <> for technical assistance
   <> for organizational problems.

Abstracts for this meeting, no longer than 250 words, should be in before Saturday 20 March 2004. Presentations should last no longer than 30 min. Contributions that will not be presented at either meeting should preferably also be in before 19 June 2004. The ultimate deadline for any contribution, including those presented in Montreal of Los Angeles, is Monday 15 November 2004.
