Panels are proposed by individual scholars around a common subject. Panels are composed of three or four paper presenters and one or more discussants. Panel proposals should include a 250 word (maximum) abstract from each participant as well as a 250 word (maximum) statement that explains the session as a whole.
--> Online form
Roundtables offer an opportunity for participants to discuss a specific theme, issue or significant recent publication. A maximum of six active participants is recommended. While a roundtable proposal will not be as detailed as a panel proposal, it should explain fully the purpose, themes or issues, and scope of the session.

Individual papers give scholars an
opportunity to participate
in the conference even if they are not able to put together a
complete panel. Since only a limited
number of individual papers can be accommodated, preference will
be given to junior scholars. Your paper has a better chance of
acceptance as part of a panel. Paper proposals
include a 250 word (maximum) abstract.
--> Online form for individual paper proposals.
Please note that no person can appear on the program more than once. The one exception is the doubling up of roles within a given panel (organizer/chair for example, or organizer/presenter).
The Executive Committee encourages members to submit proposals that, by focusing on more than one region or by drawing on more than one discipline, will attract a broad range of scholarly interest. Suggestions for innovative alternatives to the panels, individual papers, and roundtables described above are also encouraged.

Note that we receive your abstracts through an online form. This imposes some technical limitations. Italics and bold will not display, for example. For this reason, we now ask all applicants to submit abstracts by attachment in addition to the online forms. See the links above for further information.
