 INTERDISCIPLINARY CONFERENCE ON THE ENVIRONMENT 
 ***********************************************                 

      Park Plaza Hotel and Towers
      BOSTON, Massachusetts, USA, June 21-25, 1995

           CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS

  The Interdisciplinary Environmental Association (IEA) in conjunction
  with Assumption College invites you to participate in the FIRST MAJOR
  INTERDISCIPLINARY CONFERENCE ON THE ENVIRONMENT!

  We take the initiative to organize this conference because of the
  increasing need  to combine ideas and research findings from different
  disciplines to enhance our understanding of how nature works and how the
  interactions between the natural environment and human institutions are
  globally interconnected. The conference is aimed at the layperson and it
  FOCUSES on: (I) What do different disciplines have to offer with respect to
  environmental and resource problems, their solutions, and the institutions
  associated with them? (II) What are the implications of the globalization
  of environmental concerns for all life on planet Earth? 

  The conference is open to all ideologies, political persuasions, and
  academic as well as nonacademic disciplines. Participants may organize
  sessions (please ask for "Session Organizer Guidelines"), present papers,
  chair sessions, discuss papers, or simply observe.

  To facilitate communication papers must be written at a layperson's level
  and they will pass a peer review process prior to presentation and
  publication in the Conference Proceedings. Awards will be given to
  outstanding papers. With your help we hope to disseminate the Conference
  Proceedings all over the world to libraries, legislators, governmental
  agencies, and nongovernmental organizations.

  The program will consist of small seminar - type sessions meeting
  concurrently as follows: chairperson, three or four presenters, with at
  least one discussant assigned to comment on each paper. (Other formats,
  such as moderator and panelists, also might be used.) Time allocated for
  each session is one hour and 45 minutes. Additionally, the program will
  have one general session panel with invited speakers.
