Midwest Primate Interest Group (MPIG) 2010 meeting - First Call for Papers

MPIG has quickly become one of my favorite meetings: it's relatively small, it's extremely student-friendly (undergrads are frequent presenters), it's only a couple of days so doesn't kill you with tedium, and it highlights the amazing concentration of biological anthropologists in the Midwest. You DO NOT have to be from the Midwest to participate or attend. Put it on your calendar!

Dear All,
I wanted to take this opportunity to announce the first call for podium and poster presentations for our 6th Annual Meeting of the Midwest Primate Interest Group, September 24th and 25th in Chicago. Our 2010 meeting will be co-sponsored by Dr. Julienne Rutherford of University of Illinois at Chicago and Dr. Robert Martin of the Field Museum.

Attendees will have after-hours access to the Ancient Americas and Evolving Planet exhibits! The Saturday paper and poster session will be held at the UIC College of Dentistry, which houses the DuBrul Comparative Skeletal Archives, a wonderful resource for biological anthropologists and anatomists.
