Given our earlier exchanges about writing contests, it occurred to me that
someone on this list might be interested in this cross-posting from H-SOUTH.

A contest announcement on 20 January with a deadline of 15 February
obviously leaves little time to prepare a quality paper "from scratch," even
when extensive research has already been completed. But it's a good
competition to keep in mind for next year.
