The following message has been posted by the Outreach Committee of the
Association for Recorded Sound Collections (ARSC).


ARSC is now accepting proposals for presentations to be given during its
40th annual conference, in Seattle, Washington, May 17-20, 2006.

ARSC is dedicated to the preservation and study of sound recordings -- in
all genres of music and speech, in all formats, and from all periods -- and
invites program proposals on any aspect of recorded sound of interest to our
community of collectors, historians, musicians, preservationists, and
archivists. Presentations on recording activities in the Seattle area are
especially encouraged.

We seek talks, papers, panel sessions, and demonstrations that are
informative, well organized, display a passion about the subject, and
include compelling audio and/or visual content.

The deadline for proposal submissions is November 5, 2005. Notifications of
acceptance will be sent out by January 2006. According to ARSC policy,
presenters must register for the conference.

Program Committee Chair, at [log in to unmask] .
