Send paper, abstract, or proposal to the appropriate Area Chair. Deadline for receipt is April 30, 2004.

Please include name, affiliation, postal address, telephone number, and e-mail address of each author/participant.

Please plan to attend the entire conference. If you absolutely, positively cannot attend the entire conference and need your presentation scheduled on a specific day, you must let us know when you submit your proposal. Panels will run 3:00-6:15 Friday, 8:30-6:15 Saturday, and 9:00-12:15 Sunday. Special events will include a reception on Friday and a luncheon and speaker on Saturday.

The only audio-visual equipment available from the Association will be a VCR or slide projector, and you must ask for it at the time you submit your proposal.

If you wish your presentation to be listed as Midwest American Culture Association (rather than Midwest Popular Culture Association), please include this request with your proposal.

All participants must be members of the Midwest Popular Culture Association/Midwest American Culture Association. Membership is $30 for students with ID, retirees, and unemployed, and $40 for all others. Membership is for the calendar year through December 2004. To join the MPCA/MACA, you may pay with your conference registration fee, or you may send a separate check at any time to Gary Burns, Communication, Northern Illinois University, DeKalb IL 60115. Make check payable to Northern Illinois University. A membership form may be printed from our website.

All participants must register for the conference. Registration is $45 for students with ID, retirees, and unemployed, and $75 for all others. There will be a $10 late fee for registration on-site or received after September 15, 2004. Some meals are covered in your registration fee (see website for details). To preregister, send a check any time to Gary Burns, Communication, Northern Illinois University, DeKalb IL 60115. Make check payable to Northern Illinois University. A preregistration form may be printed from our website.

The hotel or the Association will send you a room registration form if your proposal is accepted. Please stay at the conference hotel so that we may meet our contractual obligation. The conference hotel is the best deal we could find on a good hotel with a good location.

Unfortunately, MPCA/MACA is not able to provide financial assistance to participants to defray costs of transportation, lodging, meals, registration, or any other expense.

The conference program will be posted on our website as soon as it is finished (probably sometime in July 2004).
