There is no over-arching theme to the conference, and the date for submission of papers has passed. The organisers did outline that they were especially looking forward to "receiving approaches from those with interests in Sino-American and Canadian-American cultural, economic, and diplomatic relations this year as well as interests in commemorating the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812."
