The quinquennial congress of the International Commission for
Maritime History (ICMH) will be held in conjunction with the
Congress of the International Commission of Historical Sciences
in Montreal, Canada in August 1995. The Programme Committee of
the ICMH has therefore issued a call for papers on the theme
"Ports, Port Cities and Maritime Communities." To participate,
members of the International Maritime Economic History
Association (IMEHA) should prepare a one-page synopsis of the
proposed paper, including title, principal argument(s), and
sources to be employed. They should also prepare a one-page
curriculum vitae, which should include affiliation (if any) and
major publications. These can be submitted either to members of
National Commissions in those countries in which they exist or to
Professor Lewis R. Fischer, Secretary-General, ICMH, Maritime
Studies Research Unit, Memorial University of Newfoundland, St.
John's, Nfld. A1C 5S7.

Proposals must be submitted no later than 31 October 1993. The
authors of successful proposals will be notified early in 1994. A
selection of the papers will be published. For further
information on this congress, please contact the Secretary-Gen-
eral, ICMH, at the address above.
