>disciplines such as historical geography, economic history or from other
>areas in history with an explicit concern for some environmental dimension

> We give preference to original and unpublished contributions.

> Symposium structure
> The Symposium sessions are structured in discussion tables, panel
>discussions, conferences and round tables. Regardless the preferred
>structure, communications or presentations assembled on a same panel -which
>hopefully will focus on the same geographic area- must have a common
>approach (methodological, thematic or temporal) in order to promote the
>dialogue among the members of the group. Panels as well as the final
>structure of the Symposium will be defined after the organization board
>receives all the proposals.
> a) Discussion table: The speakers will have adequate time to present their
>works. Once all presentations are done, a moderator will lead a debate.
> b) Panel discussion: A "commentator" will summarize the various papers,
>pointing out the main aspects for debate and promoting dialogue among the
>panel members and the audience.
> c) Conference: Two or more commentators may critically analyze papers or
>presentations particularly stimulating, and open the debate to the audience.
> d) Roundtable: Less formal occasions for the participants to discuss
>methodological or theoretical topics raised during the realization of the
> Panel members will be contacted as soon as their papers have been accepted
>and the panels defined by the organization board. By doing so, we hope to
>promote dialogue and cooperation among panel members even before the
>beginning of the event. Therefore, we urge participants to observe the
> By December 31st 2002. Submission of PROPOSALS. In order for the board to
>assess fairly the quality of the proposals, the author must identify in the
>proposal the sources and methodologies, as well as possible conclusions
>or/and hypothesis. The organization board will select the best proposals
>among all applications, and will draft a preliminary program of the meeting.
>Proposals should range from 2,000 to 3,000 words.
> By May 16th 2003. Submission of the COMPLETE VERSION of the papers. The
>complete version should be available for the commentators and moderators, as
>well as for the other speakers, as early as possible. The final program will
>be defined only after the organization board has the complete version for
> By June 13th 2003. Submission of the paper abstract for publication. Each
>participant will receive a publication with all paper abstracts at the
>beginning of the Symposium.
> The organization of the Symposium has publishing agreement that will make
>possible to publish selected papers, assembled in thematic volumes. The
>selection will take place after the Symposium to incorporate eventual
>modifications suggested to the authors during the event.
