I just saw the call for proposals for AHS13 and see that leadership’s interest in becoming the scientific event for ancestral health (leaving more consumer-oriented topics for PaleoFX) is now pretty explicit. The CFP says that AHS is looking for submissions that:
engage in either original research, a review of literature, or clinical and field experience.
This clearly ties in with other news from AHS, e.g., Paul Jaminet’s revealing that an AHS journal is on the way and AHS’ call for volunteers which suggests that the proposal process will be more in line with your average professional conference.
Seems like a good move to me.
