Call for Panels
The Call for Panels is now closed.
All proposals must be submitted via online form, where you will need to enter the following:
- the format of your proposal (see below)
- a panel title (no more than 15 words)
- names and email addresses of the panel convenors (at least one convenor is required)
- long abstract (description) of less than 300 words
You may add names of any chairs/discussants, although these can be added subsequently by sending an email to the Conference Secretariat at firstname.lastname@example.org
Submission Deadline: November 15, 2022, 11.59PM (GMT+2).
Formats: open panels, closed panels and roundtables
- Open panels: these panels do not require pre-arranged paper proposals and will be open for proposals at the Call for Papers stage where they may receive an unlimited number of proposed papers. Panel convenors may accept as many papers as they wish, with an appropriate number of sessions allocated to the panel, based on 3-4 papers per panel session. Normally the paper presenter can expect to have 20-25 minutes for the presentation and 5-10 minutes for discussion.
- Closed panels: these are pre-arranged panels, where you know who will be presenting now, rather than requiring the Call for papers to find contributors. Having proposed the panel, you will receive a confirmation email with a link you must share with your presenters, so they can propose their papers into the panel BEFORE the deadline closes, which is November 15, 2022, 11.59PM (GMT+2).
The panel will have 3-4 papers per panel session. Normally the paper presenter can expect to have 20-25 minutes for the presentation and 5-10 minutes for discussion.
- Roundtables: these are pre-arranged sessions where a group of scholars (usually no more than five) discusses themes/issues of general scholarly interest in front of (and subsequently with) an audience for the duration of a single session. While a roundtable can include short (5-10 minute) contributions, the aim is to create a lively debate rather than focus on any one presenter. Please add the contributors as discussants in the proposal form, as well as adding the chair.
- An individual may have each conference role only once during the conference – i.e. convene an open panel OR a closed panel OR a roundtable once; present a paper once; be a discussant once (either as a roundtable participant or a discussant in a panel); be a chair once (in a panel or roundtable).
- Most sessions will be 90 minutes in length.
