The Conference will be divided into three tracks: 1) Technical Symposium -- Papers for this track must be technical in content and are recommended to address the theme "The Age of the Earth" from a young earth perspective. These papers should contain original information and in some way offer a contribution to the creation model. They must not have been published before. Papers accepted to this track will be reviewed and refereed by specialists in the author's field, as well as his/her peers. Papers not directly addressing the theme are still invited and will be reviewed for possible inclusion. Papers in the life sciences are particularly encouraged. 2) Basic Creation Track -- Papers for this track are to deal with any facet of the creation model. These papers are to be written to communicate existing aspects of the creation model to a non-technical audience and must not have been previously published. These papers can deal with both scientific and non-scientific topics within the creation model. The overall purpose of this track is to develop an overview of the creation model. 3) Educational Track -- Papers for this track are to deal with the legal dissemination and education of the creation model. Methods and materials for the teaching of origins may be described and presented. The teaching or presentation of the creation model in any setting, grade school, high school, college, church, etc. is acceptable. The purpose of this track is to share insight, methods, materials, and expertise among educators from the U.S. and around the world.
