If you would like your paper to be considered, please watch for the 2009 Call for Submissions open on November 3, 2008.  You can nominate your submission by placing a check in the "Newman Award Nominee" box on the submission abstract entry screen. Submissions will be open until January 15, 2009.

Each division or interest group program chair then nominates one paper to the committee Chair of the Newman Award, Gregory Northcraft. The author(s) of the papers who have been so nominated by the division and interest group program chairs will be asked to send an electronic version and a hard copy of their paper to this award chair. Finalists will be notified prior to the conference and the winners will be announced at the conference. All finalists are expected to be in attendance.
