The Fifth Biennial "Race, Ethnicity, and Place Conference"; Binghamton University; October 6 - 8, 2010
The Race, Ethnicity and Place Conference fosters dialogue on a range of issues related to the racial and ethnic transformation of places. It encourages interdisciplinary perspectives, philosophical and methodological diversity, and professional and student perspectives on such issues. The Conference is committed to providing high quality programs and remaining open to broad participation by theoreticians, practitioners, and students. The Conference makes an effort to rotate among U. S. regions, incorporating a regional focus when appropriate, while maintaining national and international perspectives on race, ethnicity and place issues. The Conference seeks partners and host institutions for future conferences.

52nd Annual Conference of American Association for Chinese Studies; Wake Forest University, Winston-Salem, NC; October 15-17, 2010
The American Association for Chinese Studies is an interdisciplinary association devoted to the study of China. Submissions from all disciplines are welcome. Membership in AACS is required for participation in the Annual Meeting, and non-members are welcome to submit proposals, join the Association and participate in the Annual Meeting. We encourage submissions from graduate students as well as junior and senior scholars, and overseas participants.
The program committee prefers proposals for complete panels (a chair, 2-3 papers, and 1-2 discussants) and roundtables (a chair and 3-4 other participants). The committee also welcomes proposals for individual papers and will attempt to place them on appropriate panels. Panels and roundtables concerning special events or topics of broad significance are especially welcome. Overall, our goal is to construct a balanced program, including panels representing the humanities, social sciences, education and business-related disciplines.
Members of the program committee include Shelley Rigger, Wei-Chin Lee, Woo Thye Wing and Chia-Lin Tao. Proposals should include the names and roles of panel/roundtable participants, contact information, paper topics and short abstracts. Please send your proposal, preferably by e-mail, to Professor Rigger at email@example.com. Make sure to include complete contact information (address, telephone number, and e-mail). The deadline for proposals is May 7, 2010. Scholars submitting proposals by this deadline will be notified about their inclusion in the program by June 18th.

Sexual Science: What We Know and How We Know It; Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, Green Valley Ranch Resort & Spa; November 4-7, 2010
Over the past several decades, the field of sexual science has widely expanded our understanding of the psychological, social, cultural, and biological aspects of sexuality. Through methodological innovations and theoretical advances, sexual scientists have contributed to this burgeoning fund of knowledge, providing evidence-based information to educators, clinicians, policy makers, and the public. This conference will highlight the role of science in our understanding of sexuality, as well as the ways in which scientific research influences the realms of clinical practice, education, media, and public policy.
