Hello,

I am chairing the 2nd Annual Amelia Earhart-Fred Noonan Symposium in Eugene, Oregon again this year at the Eugene Hilton.   The Symposium will occur on either Thursday, May 2, Friday, May 3 or Saturday, May 4, 2019.  The exact day will be determined soon.

This symposium is a component The Archaeology Channel (TAC) Conference on Cultural Heritage Media which is itself a key activity of the 16th Annual TAC International Film Festival.  The Archaeology Channel (TAC) is a streaming media website brought to you by Archaeological Legacy Institute (ALI) which is a 501[c][3] nonprofit. 

Please consider attending as a presenter.   The Deadline for submitting an abstract for a presentation or forum topic is January 31, 2019 (midnight).
Your presentation does not have to be ready by then.  Forward a 150-words-or-less description of the topic you want to present.  The registration fee for presenters is $100 which is also due on January 31.   If you want to submit an abstract email me directly at KSpading@Comcast.net.  I will forward an abstract submission form to you.

Many of you can speak to a Earhart-Noonan topic or have ideas for a forum topic.   The symposium is held to further the development of our understanding of Ms. Earhart’s and Mr. Noonan’s lives, contributions, disappearance and influences on popular culture.  The symposium presents a wonderful opportunity for Earhart-Noonan devotees and researchers to get together, network and compare notes!  This Conference is especially well designed for media-related presentations.

Note the wide variety of topics at this link which were presented last year ranging from tongue-in-check humor such as:

“Buzzards or Boosters? Fiction Writers and the Amelia Mystery”
to Technical:
“Reassessment of Acute Environment Impacts on Earhart’s Final Flight”.

The Earhart-Noonan Symposium will be listed in conference brochures as: “The Search for Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan II: Updates and New Developments.”  Symposium papers will be presented in the morning and afternoon on symposium day.  In 2018 we had a full morning and afternoon of interesting AE-FN related presentations.
 
I sincerely hope you can attend this year.  Questions are welcome.
 
The festival/conference registration and payment goes directly to the Archaeological Legacy Institute.

TIGHAR will not be participating in the symposium but I've told Kenton that we'll be happy to publish anyone’s research that adds to the understanding of the events surrounding the Earhart disappearance.
