Call For Papers! 2020 Meeting, Parump, NV

Call for Papers! DEADLINE EXTENDED to February 28th!!!

The Nevada Archaeological Association

49th Annual Meeting 

March 6-8, 2020

Pahrump Nugget Hotel and Casino

Pahrump, Nevada

 The 49th Annual Meeting of the Nevada Archaeological Association will be an exciting one, with a full schedule of workshops, interesting papers, evening social, the infamous auction, and much more! We encourage all meeting attendees to present a short paper or poster on any interesting work they are currently doing (or have done) pertaining to the archaeology, history, or ethnohistory of Nevada. Students are particularly urged to present summaries or discussions of their research in what will be a friendly, low-stress meeting environment.

There are two formats for paper presentations this year. The first is the standard 15-minute presentation; the second is a 3-minute presentation for a special “speed-dating” session held either Friday or Saturday. The number of 15-minute presentations we can accept is unlimited, but we can only accept 10 presentations for the 3-minute speed-dating session. If you are determined to give a 3-minute presentation, get it in early to reserve your space.

We also encourage you to prepare posters – which this year we may combine with the Friday pre-dinner social. Specifications about poster size and other info about poster presentations is available upon request.

Please send an abstract of your paper or poster (no more than 150 words) to Victor Villagran Program Chair, no later than February 28, 2020. Make sure your abstract contains the abstract title and author’s name(s) and affiliation(s). You can e-mail your abstract (in Microsoft Word format ONLY) to or send it standard mail to Victor Villagran, 7210 Placid Street, Las Vegas, NV 89119.  Please contact Victor by e-mail or by phone (626)824-2961 for details concerning abstracts or papers.
