CALL FOR PAPERS
ARARA 2022 Conference
June 17-20, 2022 (Note the date change)
Presenters Must Register for the Conference
Deadline for Submission is April 1, 2022
ARARA invites proposals for presentations at the 2022 Conference in Great Falls, Montana. Presenters do not have to be ARARA members to present, but current ARARA members will be given preference. This meeting returns to in-person presentations as in years past but will also retain the new format of Field Trip Videos. This early Call for Papers and Videos will allow for video footage to be taken during the North American field season in the areas that will experience winter before long.
The review committee will be making difficult decisions for presentation selections to fill the limited program slots. Please polish your abstracts to perfection.
All questions about the submission process should be directed to the Program Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
Traditional Paper Presentations: Papers and reports must be created and presented in PowerPoint. Abstracts of 200 words or less should be submitted via this online form by April 1, 2022 for consideration.
Applications must designate presentations as one of the following:
***Please note that if your abstract is not selected for presentation at the conference, you are still encouraged to submit your research paper or report for publication consideration to our annual journal, American Indian Rock Art. Instructions for submission can be found here.
Field Trip Video Presentations: The field trip video presentation seeks to virtually take people to rock art sites through an edited digital video format. The final video is limited to 8-minutes in edited length, with one or more people in front of the camera, or a voice dubbed over the images, telling the viewers about the rock art site. The cameraperson should show the environment of the site including terrain, vegetation, and viewsheds as well as the rock art images. Essentially, it should be the whole field trip experience! On the program, field trip video presentations will be allowed 10 minutes to include time for questions. Though the videos are short in length, only a limited number will be shown during the conference.
For consideration, please complete the form on this page, using the Abstract box to write a short description of the site involved in the video, and click the button to indicate you want to submit a Field Trip Video. After you submit this form, a Dropbox link will be sent to your email address shortly thereafter where you can upload your completed video. The completed video must be uploaded to Dropbox by the April 1 deadline to be included for consideration by the program review committee.
Field trip video: The final product to be presented will be an edited video that runs 8 minutes or less at 1080i resolution in MP4 format.
