Reminder for the memory-impaired (Call for Papers)
Comrades in the P2 Revolution__
It was Mencken that said: "Any man who afflicts the human race with
ideas must be prepared to see them misunderstood." And while being
misunderstood worked for Erik Burdon and the Animals, it tends to
frustrate the rest of us. So here's your chance to be somewhat less
misunderstood by coming to Cincinnatti and explaining your ideas in
Just a post-holiday reminder of the call for papers we issued last
month, seeking presentations for the "Information Technologies and
Pollution Prevention: Practical Tools for P2 Results," track of the
National Pollution Prevention Roundtable Spring Conference (April
28-May 1, 1998 Cincinnati, OH). While we've extended the deadline by
a few days to accommodate those afflicted with eggnog-induced memory
lapses, we really do need to have abstracts submitted to myself and/or
Greg Geyer NO LATER THAN Monday, January 14, 1998.
This is already shaping up to be a good session. But as Linus Pauling
once said (well, he probably said it more than once, but I

FINAL (yes, this time we really mean final!) CALL FOR PAPERS
"Information Technologies and Pollution Prevention: Practical Tools
for P2 Results."
National Pollution Prevention Roundtable Spring Conference April
28-May 1, 1998
The Information Technologies Working Group of the National Pollution
Prevention Roundtable is pleased to invite "proposals to present" for
the NPPR's 1998 Spring National Meeting. The meeting will be held in
Cincinnati, OH on April 28-May 1, 1998 and promises to be the premier
event in the P2 community!
We are specifically looking for papers or presentations on the
- Innovative Approaches to Using Information Technologies for
Pollution Prevention. How can information technologies be applied to
pollution prevention? We are looking for innovative applications
of modeling, simulation, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and
other software to pollution prevention training, program development,
and technical assistance.
- How to Use the Internet Effectively. Now that the Internet has
become a mainstream tool, what has been done to deliver information
effectively, and what can be done to improve it's effectiveness?
Share what you've done in web site design, training, or integration
with the other aspects of your program. We are looking for tools and
examples that will advance the effectiveness of P2 Centers, P2
Technical Assistance providers, and state environmental programs.
- Linking P2 Information Providers -- An Update on the status of the
National P2 Information Network. The NPPR has been a leader in the
development of a national network of P2 information providers. This
session will provide an update on the status of the network and
related efforts to link information providers.
If you would like to present information on any of these topics,
please send a short (500 word or less) description of your proposed
presentation, along with the usual contact information (name,
organizational affiliation, phone, and e-mail) to the session
co-chairs (listed below). Selection of proposed papers will occur on
or about January 15, 1998 and we will make a valiant effort to notify
all who submit proposals of the status of their submission by the time
the groundhog pops his/her head out of the ground. Authors whose
papers are accepted for presentation will be required to provide a
short professional biography.
If you have any questions about a proposed topic, please feel free to
contact either of us!
