    [*ALL DEADLINES HAVE BEEN EXTENDED TO SEPTEMBER 24, 2021- PLEASE SUBMIT IF YOU WANT TO PRESENT*]

    Abstracts and creative ideas are sought for posters, papers and symposia to be presented at the 92nd Annual Meeting of the Texas Archaeological Society to be held October 22 -23, 2021. TAS encourages presentations by avocational, student, and professional archaeologist members on any topic of archaeological interest. According to TAS policy, all presenters must be TAS members and be registered for the meeting. The Registrar and Program Committee will ensure membership compliance.

    The 92nd Annual Meeting will be held in an entirely online format to ensure the safety of our members while COVID limits in-person gatherings and complicates the logistics of travel.

    All presentations must adhere to a 20-minute time limit. Simultaneous virtual sessions will be held on the day of the event. TAS members that register for the conference can move virtually from program to program to attend talks of interest, and they may access all presentations online following the conference.

    Symposia may be organized around any topic, area, major project, and/or time period. All symposia will be limited to four papers due to platform limitations imposed by the virtual format.

    Poster presentations can effectively convey visual, graphic, and quantitative information and posters reach a larger audience than oral papers. Members are encouraged to consider poster presentations as an alternative to papers. All posters will be uploaded to a virtual bookroom where audience members may post comments and questions to engage with the presenter. Other presentation formats such as panel discussions and demonstrations must receive prior approval from the Program Co-Chairs and Annual Meeting organizers.

    [*ALL DEADLINES HAVE BEEN EXTENDED - PLEASE SUBMIT IF YOU WANT TO PRESENT*]

    Abstracts may be submitted at this time via email to am-papers@txarch.org. The final deadline for receipt of paper abstracts is September 1, 2021 September 24, 2021. Symposium organizers must ensure that all abstracts for symposia and symposium papers meet an earlier deadline of August 15, 2021. Poster abstracts must be received by September 1, 2021 September 24, 2021. Alternative presentation formats require additional planning, so proposals for such presentations must be received by August 8, 2021.

    Presenters must be prepared to present via virtual platform. Contact the Program Co-Chairs with questions about submission dates, formats, and/or equipment. Authors will be notified in early to mid-September if their paper has been accepted for presentation. We look forward to your contribution to this year’s meeting.

    GUIDELINES FOR PRESENTERS

    The Program Co-Chairs recommend these guidelines for poster presentations to sharpen conference standards and stimulate session impact.

    September 1 is the deadline for the submission of nominations for TAS awards this year. Please refer to the “Awards” Page under the Member Area on the TAS website for a list of award categories and for the “Nomination Submission Form”. (Please note that for the Awards Committee to recommend a nomination for a vote by the Board, at least 3 members must complete a nomination form in support of an individual member for a specific award, so coordination in this initiative is important.)

    Thank you,

    James Everett

    TAS Immediate Past President
