Abstract submission and panel proposal

Abstracts of papers which do not directly fall within any of the seven sub-themes above may also be submitted for consideration by the conference organisers. The author should submit a maximum-300-word abstract which includes a title of the proposed paper and should provide his/her short bio (including name, email, academic appointment, affilications, research interests and key publications).

Intended participants should submit either a paper abstract or a panel proposal. A panel proposal is a proposal to form a panel in which three (or four) papers would be presented. A panel proposal should include a description of the topic of the panel, and the abstracts of the three (or four) papers to be presented in the panel. A panel should have three (or four) speakers each presenting a paper, and one moderator who would serve as both chair and discussant for the panel.

Up to two paper abstracts may be submitted. However, only one abstract will be accepted. In the event of a submission of an abstract both individually and as part of a panel, the panel submission will take precedence. A committee will consider the abstracts, and the authors will be notified shortly thereafter.

Abstracts are to be submitted by 30 June 2019.
