Call For Papers! 2022 Meeting, Tonopah, NV

The Nevada Archaeological Association

50th Annual Meeting, April 22-24, 2022

Tonopah Convention Center, Tonopah, Nevada

The 50th 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. 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. Poster sessions may be either Friday or Saturday. Specifications about poster size and other information about poster presentations are available upon request.

This year, NAA will award $150 to the top student paper and the top student poster! If interested in entering the student competition, please indicate student status when submitting an abstract. To be eligible, a student must be the lead author, but co-authored submissions are acceptable. If two or more students are co-authors, the prize money may be split.

Please send an abstract of your paper or poster (no more than 150 words) to Victor Villagran, Program Chair, no later than April 1, 2022. Make sure your abstract contains the abstract title and author name(s) and affiliation(s). Preferred abstract submission is through email (in Microsoft Word format ONLY) to Victor Villagran, NAA Annual Meeting Conference Chair, at conferencechair@nvarch.org. Abstracts may also be submitted via standard mail to NAA, P.O. Box 206, Reno, NV 89504. Please contact Victor by e-mail for details concerning abstracts or papers.
