The following is from Andy Billings regarding next year's Summit on Communication and Sport. Please note the deadline for submissions is fast approaching:

Call for Papers
Third Summit on Communication & Sport
February 28-March 1, 2008
The Madren Center at Clemson University
Clemson, SC

Building on the first two Summits on Communication and Sport held at the Arizona State University-West, this summit will bring together scholars who study sport through a communicative lens, examining the ways in which communication shapes academic and societal understandings and experiences of sport. Additionally, the summit will provide an opportunity for scholars conducting research on communication and sport to come together to share their scholarship and ideas, providing an opportunity for participants to further refine future directions and possibilities for the study of sport and communication.

The Summit will feature two outstanding keynote speakers: Dr. Jennings Bryant, Associate Dean for Graduate Studies and Research, University of Alabama and Dr. Margaret Carlisle Duncan, Professor of Health Science, Past President of the North American Society for the Sociology of Sport, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. The event will be held at the Madren Conference Center at Clemson University. More information on the facilities can be found at http://www.clemson.edu/madren/toc/. The Madren Center is connected to the James F. Martin Inn, with a negotiated Summit rate of $89 per night if booked before January 1, 2008.

In addition, some of the best research submitted and presented at the Summit will be published in a special issue of Journal of Communication Studies. Papers will undergo blind peer review, with approximately 4-5 articles being selected for publication. All communication scholars currently exploring communication and sport are encouraged to submit one of the following:

1.) Abstracts (200-500 words) to be considered for presentation at the Summit.
2.) Full-length manuscripts (8,000-10,000 words, APA style) to be considered for both the Summit and the
special issue of Journal of Communication Studies.
3.) Full-length manuscripts (7,000-10,000 words, APA format) to be considered for only Summit
presentation.

Submissions should be emailed to acbilng@clemson.edu no later than October 1, 2007. Please indicate if you would like your piece to be considered for publication in the special issue of Journal of Communication Studies. Presenters will be notified of presentation acceptance via email by November 15, 2007. Space will also be allotted for non-presenting attendees. Conference fees will be $70 for faculty and $30 for students (checks payable to the Clemson University Foundation with a memo listing this is for a Communication Studies function).
