As we move closer to Easter, we are now a little more than 7 months away from the conference. There are several key dates to remember: if you are planning to submit a paper, the deadline for abstracts is April 15th (easy to remember—same as tax day!) and a discount for early registration runs through the end of May.

One of the organizers, Mark Antonacci, was recently interviewed on a local St. Louis TV station, where he, of course, mentions the conference. The reporter, Kay Quinn, asked Mark afterwards to let her know more information about the conference when it gets closer. Hopefully the station will provide some coverage before and during the conference. You can see the segment (about 3 ½ minutes) at:http://www.ksdk.com/story/news/2014/03/24/shroud-of-turin-mark-antonacci/6838531/.

With another Shroud conference slated for Italy in October 2014 and with an actual exposition of the Shroud set for 2015, this is an exciting time in Shroud studies. We expect to have many exciting presentations. The venue for the conference is easily accessible and is right next to a major mall. Come join us and let your friends know about it as well.
