      o Mizrahim
      o Israel
      o US and Canada
      o South and Central America
      o Western Europe
      o Other locales (Australia, China, South Africa, India, etc.)
      • Jewish immigration and migration
      • Jewish surname adoption and naming patterns
      • Holocaust research
      • Genetics and DNA research
      • Jewish history and culture
      • Jewish music, theater, and food, especially as they apply to
      specific times and places in Jewish history
      • Photographic and document preservation
      • Technology and Internet resources
      • Computer training workshops
      • Other training workshops (e.g. photo identification, document
      preservation)

      Presentations and panel discussions will be 75 minutes including 15
      minutes reserved for questions and answers. Workshops will be 2 hours
      in length.

      Speakers may submit any number of proposals. Individual speakers
      having at least one proposal accepted will receive complimentary
      conference registration. Speakers who share accepted proposals will
      be offered partial registration fee waivers.
