[eDebate] Reminder about upcoming deadline for topic wording papers
Fri May 11 12:18:07 CDT 2007
The deadline for submitting a wording paper is almost here, so I wanted
to provide a reminder to the community that you can still develop and
submit a proposal. If you have any interest in specific work, please
let me know. The topic blog http://blog.cedatopic.com/ also provides a
great way to both see our current items of consideration and also to
leave your feedback.
The full call for wording papers has been posted at the topic website
http://www.cedatopic.com/ and is reprinted below.
The selected controversy is now researched with an interest in
developing the possible specific propositions (or resolutions) for the
coming season. The committee and community will both be invited to
prepare such *wording papers* in advance of the CEDA summer business
All wording papers submitted to the topic chair by *Sunday May 13, 2007*
and relating to the controversy selected by the community vote will be
placed on the agenda for the summer meetings and, subject to a committee
vote, placed on the topic wording ballot. All wording papers submitted
by the deadline and meeting the above guidelines will be voted on by the
committee. Completed and germane papers will be presumptively considered
for the ballot.
The *CEDA summer business meeting* takes place in early summer and
includes 2.5 days worth of deliberation on the wording choices. The
location of the meeting is determined by the CEDA executive council
after considering bids from host intuitions. The 2007 meeting will be
hosted by James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA from Monday, May
21-Wednesday May 23. The CEDA business meeting will take place
immediately prior to the topic session (May 19-21).
