Write On! Cutting-edge papers for ASIL

(Write On! is an occasional item about notable calls for papers.) In preparation for its next annual meeting, to be held March 25-28, 2009, in Washington, D.C., the American Society of International Law has issued a call for abstracts of papers to be presented at a "Cutting Edge Panel." Papers must relate to the conference theme, "International Law as Law."
All applicants -- students as well as junior and senior practitioners and academics -- are invited to submit proposals to be reviewed in a competitive selection process. Selected speakers must be Society members by the time of their presentation. Strong preference will be given to papers not already published.
To enter, submit:
► a 1,000-to-2,000-word abstract of the paper (applicants who've already completed their paper are welcome but not required to submit it at this time);
► a statement of 200 or fewer words explaining the stage of progress of the paper (e.g., yet to be drafted, fully drafted but not yet accepted for publication, accepted for publication, published);
► contact information; and
► a statement of whether the applicant would or would not also like to be considered for a new poster session format.
Details here. Submissions should be e-mailed to 2009annualmeeting@asil.org by the deadline of December 1, 2008.
