IASD is currently involved in the creation of books on dreams and we wanted to provide a chance for our IASD Arts community to participate.
Dreams: A Tutorial Reference (tentative title) – deadline is December 31, 2016 – will examine all aspects of dreaming, from science and psychology to culture and the arts. To understand how art is typically used in therapy and as inspiration from dreams, we are surveying our IASD artist community, the results of which will be summarized and compiled into two separate chapters. The survey asks for short summaries from our artists as to how they use art in one or both of these ways and what process they go through.
If you are interested in your work being mentioned or featured in either of these areas click here and complete the forms there.

WEBB EXPLORES THE POWER OF DREAMS AND MUSIC
During four recent media interviews/presentations across the nation, Craig Webb shared how little-known dreams guided the well-known public figures from his new book The Dreams Behind the Music: Learn Creative Dreaming as 100+ Top Artists Reveal their Breakthrough Inspirations, including powerful creative dreams, lucid dreams, and warning dreams.
In this issue of Hot Off the Press we will be
focusing on flying dreams. The intention of this column is to publish
links to evidence-based scientific articles on the study of dreams that
are written for a non-research audience.

Curtiss Hoffman, Student Research Awards Chair
We are pleased to announce that the anonymous donor who generously provided funding for the Student Research Award last year has graciously agreed to provide matching funds for the 2017 competition! The IASD Board of Trustees will provide the balance of funds.
As in previous years, there will be two $500 awards. The first is for the best student submission of original scientific research on dreams and dreaming. The second is for the best submission of original historical, literary, artistic, or theoretical research. Undergraduate and graduate students are eligible to submit papers. See http://www.asdreams.org/student-awards/ for additional details.
All participants must submit their presentations in electronic form, preferably through email to firstname.lastname@example.org or if necessary by mailing the files, copied to a CD or a DVD, to the IASD office by March 1, 2017.
Mark on any mailed box "OK to leave on porch."
Alternatively, a copy can be faxed to the IASD Office at 1-209-724-0889, or scanned and emailed as an attachment to email@example.com. A note or cover letter should be included to indicate that this is for the IASD Student Research Award. Participants must specify which of the two awards they are applying for.
Participants may also electronically submit videos in AVI formats, or music in MIDI or MPS formats. In the case of papers with multiple authors – in terms of the ideas presented as well as the description of the results – the contestant must indicate clearly, in either the text of the paper or in an accompanying letter, what portions are the submitter’s work. Research that has been published prior to the submissions deadline is not eligible for this award.
Submissions must include a copy of the participant’s student ID.
Winners will be announced during the General Membership Meeting at the IASD annual conference, which will be held at the Wyndham Anaheim Garden Grove Hotel, June 16-20, 2017. Check the schedule of conference events to find out the exact date and time.
