This year the Ancient Philosophy Society received over 100 submissions for its Spring 2008 annual meeting at the New School in New York City. While the Society is very impressed by the overall quality of these submissions, the record number of submissions poses specific problems for a program that can only accept a very limited number of submissions each year. Our aim is to be as inclusive as possible without sacrificing our commitment to scholarly excellence. Historically, the format of the program has been to have plenary sessions exclusively. While we are considering various ways to expand the number of people on the program, we have been hesitant to introduce concurrent sessions because we have long sought to cultivate the spirit of community and conversation that plenary sessions generate.Final decisions about the program are in the process of being made. However, before the program is set, we want to thank all of you who have submitted papers for your interest in the Ancient Philosophy Society. For those of you who are not accepted onto the program this year, please do not be discouraged as decisions were made with an eye to ensuring a rich diversity of approach and content.
