Two Hundred and Twenty-Fourth Meeting


The 224th Meeting of the AOS will be held Friday, March 14–Monday, March 17, 2014, in Phoenix, Arizona.

(Dues and Meeting Forms are available for download below)


Hotel and Reservations: A block of conference-rate accommodations has been reserved at the Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak Resort, 7677 North 16th Street, Phoenix, Arizona, 85020 USA. Conference rates per night for rooms are $175 single or double.
The Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak Resort is located 10 miles (20 minutes) from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. Just minutes from a variety of shopping and dining, its location offers fantastic views of dramatic mountain scenery. Local attractions include Lookout Mountain golf course, Major League Baseball's Cactus League Spring Training facilities, Old Town Scottsdale, Downtown Phoenix and outdoor recreation, and U.S. Airways Arena and University of Phoenix Stadium.
You must make reservations directly with the hotel well in advance of the meeting, no later than February 10, 2014. Conference rates also apply 3 days in advance and after the meeting. After the cutoff date, any uncommitted rooms in the block we have reserved will be released for general sale, and additional reservation requests will be accepted if rooms are available and without the conference discount.

Reservations: Direct phone: 602-997-2626 ; Toll-free general Hilton reservation line: 1-800-HILTONS. You should request the AOS conference rate when making your reservation. Our hotel Group Code is ‘‘AOR’’ . Hotel website: http://www3.hilton.com/en/hotels/arizona/pointe-hilton-squaw-peak-resort-PHXSPPR/index.html.

The Society’s contract with the Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak Resort for securing conference rates requires that a minimum number of rooms per night be reserved and occupied by members for the duration of the meeting. Thus, your stay at the Pointe Hilton assures that the AOS will not be assessed extremely high fees for meeting and banquet space rental. We truly need your cooperation in this matter.

All sessions will be held at the Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak Resort. The Annual Subscription Banquet will take place on Sunday evening, March 16, also at the hotel. The Program, which will be mailed to you in late January, 2014, will provide information on other special activities and events to take take place during the meeting.

Transportation: From Sky Harbor International Airport, you may select Super Shuttle $17.00 or Taxi $30.00. Detailed directions: http://www3.hilton.com/en/hotels/arizona/pointe-hilton-squaw-peak-resort-PHXSPPR/maps-directions/index.html Self parking: Complimentary

Members of the Society are hereby invited to submit communications to be presented at the 224th Meeting. Please complete and return the Announcement of Communication form and an Abstract of the proposed paper to the Office of the Secretary BEFORE OCTOBER 15, 2013. No paper will be considered unless (a) an Abstract of it is submitted with completed Announcement Form according to the guidelines set forth in the next paragraph, (b) the completed Combined Dues Payment/Pre-registration/Credit Card Form and Fee accompany the submitted Abstract and Announcement. All these PDF ``fillable'' forms may be completed, saved locally, and returned by email attachment if payment is made with a credit card. You may also return the printed forms with payment check by post.

Members who submit papers will be notified by email or post of their inclusion on the Program soon after January 15, 2014. Sectional Committee Chairs, whose names are listed on the verso of the title page of the Journal, should be contacted directly only in the matter of organizing special panels. (Refer also to: http://www.umich.edu/~aos/frntmtr.htm#OFFICERS)
Abstracts of no more than 300 words should cover the following points: (a) the precise topic treated, (b) your exact contribution to the problem, (c) its relationship to previous scholarship on the topic, (d) specific conclusions. Please also keep in mind that abstracts of papers accepted for presentation will appear in the published Abstracts in the way in which they have been submitted. It is impossible for this Office to edit them. Please transliterate non-Latin writing systems. Text submitted in non-Latin writing will be not appear in the printed abstracts.

Please note that the Program Committee will not accept papers for inclusion on the Program submitted by members whose 2014 dues have not been paid or who neglect to submit abstracts and registration forms in full with pre-registration fee by the October 15, 2013 deadline. We emphasize that you must pay your 2014 dues and submit your abstract and dues payment/pre-registration form with fee by the October 15, 2013 deadline. Otherwise, your paper will not be considered acceptable for inclusion on the Program.

Papers from non-members, except for those of visiting scholars invited to participate in special panels, cannot be considered because of the expense the Society bears in running the Annual Meeting. When inviting colleagues and students who are not AOS members to participate in the program, please inform them that they should apply for membership at the time they submit abstracts.

Please respond to the Call for Papers only if you plan to attend the Meeting. Failure to present a paper that has been accepted on the Program creates a very poor impression of the Society and is particularly discourteous to those members who may have travelled great distances just to hear certain communications.

Papers should be sufficiently succinct to be read in fifteen minutes. Only five double-spaced typed pages can be read in fifteen minutes. Sectional Meeting schedules allow five additional minutes for questions and comments following each paper.

All materials must to submitted by October 15, 2013, to the Office of the Secretary, American Oriental Society, Hatcher Graduate Library, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan 48109-1190 ; telephone 734-647-4760.
