The paper can be issue-based (e.g., white paper) or original research. Time is allotted during the conference for selected young scholars to present their papers. Please use the link above to submit (by July 1st) your contact information, paper (one document in pdf format), and an abridged Curriculum Vitae (maximum 3 pages) in PDF format that highlights your research, teaching, and service activities.
