AGG Call for Papers - one week to go

From the American Glass Guild -

The mission of the AGG is to provide an open forum for the exchange of information on stained, leaded and decorative glass and its creation, preservation, restoration, and history. Our intention is to work toward building an environment within the field that both cultivates novices and facilitates experienced artists and craftspeople to attain a higher level of expertise. Our well-received conferences include presentations, round-table discussions, and demonstrations by notable national and international experts. Information on past conferences is available on our website at

Abstracts for the 2010 Conference in Detroit should be submitted by email to by December 4, 2009. They should include a title and be no longer than 300 words. Authors should include a bio and full contact information for themselves (name/company, mailing address, phone, fax, website, and email address) and if a panel is proposed, for the other panel members.

If your proposal is accepted, all travel and hotel expenses are the responsibility of the presenter(s). Those giving 40-minute talks receive one free registration for the conference (to be split if there are two presenters) and those giving 20-minute talks receive one free half-registration. Those organizing and leading panel discussions receive one half-registration. The panelists receive Conference Post-prints and a T-shirt. To receive these benefits, presenter(s) must register for the conference.

The program committee will send notification of acceptance by January 5, 2010. We will publish a Post-print of the presentations. Past years conference Pre and Post-prints are available on the AGG website.

Questions or comments should be directed by email to We also welcome suggestions for topics on which you would like to hear presentations. Please feel free to distribute this announcement to any interested colleagues. We look forward to seeing you in Detroit!
