Please spread the news and encourage your colleagues, students, and selves to submit proposals no later than 30 April 2014 to jcsa.vancouver.2014@gmail.com.

In order to support young Conradians and to foster inclusive dialogue at the conference, the conference committee will be granting four $500 young scholar travel grants so that graduate students or young faculty members may attend the conference, with the stipulation that the awardees attend the entire conference. These grants are especially needful because Vancouver is a relatively expensive city and Fairleigh Dickinson University does not have dormitory space available as did UBC in previous years.

Vancouver will be hosting other conferences this August, so the reserved blocks of rooms (at the Georgian Court Hotel and the Sandman Hotel Vancouver City Centre) will disappear very quickly once their deadlines have passed - and any still lower budget accommodations elsewhere will surely disappear even before then. …
