>I assume that you will have a call for papers or something similar?
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?
