Regular Mail or FAX - Call for Papers

Fall Meeting of the Illinois and Iowa Sections of AAPT
October 29-30, 1999
Augustana College, Rock Island, Illinois

We solicit your papers and student projects in any area of classroom physics.  Many of you have proven, clever ideas and we want to hear them.  Some of you have students who are involved with you on an student research project.  If you would like to share a summary of your work, please submit a one paragraph abstract to conform to the format given below and mail or FAX it no later than October 22 to the address listed at the bottom of the page.

The abstract must be typed. Begin the abstract with the title, then the name(s) of the author(s), (underline the name of the presenter), followed by the institution, city, state, and ZIP code. The abstract must be a single paragraph, single spaced.  State specific objectives, findings, and conclusions.  Your abstract will appear in the final program for the meeting and will be "published" on the ISAAPT Web site.

Please specify your audio visual and computer requirements.  The classrooms have an overhead projector, a ceiling video projector, a VCR, a desktop Dell Pentium 333, and plugs for either type of laptop that you may wish to bring - PC or Mac.  The Dell PC has MS Office 97 (Word, Excel, and PowerPoint), Netscape 4.6, Internet Explorer 4, WS_FTP for file transfer, a ZIP drive, and a CD-ROM.  The computer is on the Internet. 

Please indicate in the comments when you would prefer to give your talk (Friday afternoon, Saturday morning or Saturday afternoon) and how long you expect it to be. Papers will be allowed 10, 15, or 20 minutes.  This includes the time for discussion and questions.

Please include your telephone number and e-mail address so that you may be notified of the time that your talk is scheduled.
