Hello all,

I've attached the call for proposed sites for the 2014 conference of the 
ILDS: On Miracle Ground XVIII.

Please forward it to anyone you think may be interested.  Samples of 
previous proposals are attached as well.

All best,

On Miracle Ground XVIII – 2014

The Executive Board of the International Lawrence Durrell Society 
requests proposals from members interested in organizing or hosting the 
conference that the society will sponsor in summer 2014: "On Miracle 
Ground XVIII."	
Any proposal should include the reasons why the location is particularly 
suitable for a conference devoted to Durrell and study of his 
work—and/or attractive to and convenient for potential attendees. A 
proposal should also identify those who would undertake planning and 
implementing local arrangements for the conference and describe their 
qualifications, interests, and availability.

Additionally, proposals should cover the following points:
1) Possible dates;
2) Transportation to and from the proposed site, as well as locally;
3) Description of possible meeting sites—their location and suitability;
4) Possibilities for sponsorship by institutions or organizations;
5) Quality and availability of hotel rooms, restaurants, & other facilities.

Finally proposals should include estimates of expenses (a tentative 
budget) and possible sources for funding (grants and donations).

Please send proposals to James Gifford, ILDS president, by e-mail 
attachment at <james.d.gifford at gmail.com> and <gifford at fdu.edu> by 30 
January 2013.
