Dear Joshua:

Although we briefly considered calling for papers, we decided not to
based on several factors.  First and foremost, JurassiCon is not a formal
academic conference.  We plan to have a relaxed atmosphere that would be
aimed at both pros and non-pros. JurassiCon is what we consider an
"alternative" to the standard academic conference. Also, our organizing
committee feels that presenting papers should be reserved for the larger,
more academically powerful "DinoFest".  

I hope that answers your question.  I would not mind hearing an alternate
opinion if you disagree with our decision?
