Namorato of the University of Mississippi.

Proposals for individual papers should include an abstract of no more than five hundred words, a brief vita, postal and e-mail addresses, and telephone and fax numbers. Panel proposals should also suggest a title and a panel chair. Graduate students and nonacademic affiliates are welcome. Submissions imply that at least one author will register for the conference and be present at the time designated in the conference program. The deadline for submissions is January 15, 2004. Proposals may be submitted by email to kweiher@utsa.edu, or by mail to Ken Weiher, Chair, Department of Economics, University of Texas at San Antonio, 6900 North Loop 1604 West, San Antonio, Texas 78249-0631.
