Most of the papers presented under Muslim-Christian Encounter or Islamic Studies were by special invitation. We also received a number of papers which were unsolicited. In every case we tried to fit the offered papers into the program without jeopardizing the planned themes for sessions. However, the desire of the Steering Committee was to focus each session around a chosen topic so that speakers and audience could interact on a particular issue.
