Registration deadline for participants in the programme
Online programme published
Abstracts are to be submitted electronically via the online submission system by 20 March 2023
Abstracts received via fax, e-mail, or received after the deadline will not be accepted and therefore will not be considered for the programme.
Submitters may submit up to two paper abstracts and two panel and/or roundtable abstracts. Any abstracts submitted over the limit will not be considered
There are two separate submission platforms, one for individual paper submissions and one for panel submissions and roundtable submissions. However, the abstract formatting requirements are the same for all of them.
This year, an online one-day pre-conference will be organized (5 September 2023).
Authors interested in taking part should select Online Section as the preferred thematic section in the submission process (see the overview of sections here).
PANEL AND ROUNDTABLE PROPOSALS
Ensure that you select the correct platform for panel/roundtable submissions (not paper submissions) and take into account the submission guidelines below. Please note that Panels and Roundtables must not be manels. While composing panels/roundtables, please actively consider making them diverse and inclusive, over and above gender.
- A panel session lasts 90 minutes. It incorporates 5 paper presentations, a Q&A and generally (but not always) includes discussant comments.
- The submitter uploads the panel description first and then the content of the panel (panel papers + roles).
- Each panel consists of 1 chair, 5 panel papers, and 1 discussant (a discussant is optional, subject to section chairs’ approval).
- A Roundtable is a freer form discussion around a common theme with 5-6 participants.
- The submitter uploads an overall roundtable description (which includes a one-sentence description of each participant’s likely contribution) and then the content of the roundtable.
- Each roundtable consists of 1 chair, a maximum of 6 presenters.
- It is ultimately up to the Section Chairs to decide whether they wish discussant functions to be undertaken in their sections (in keeping with convention) or not (in order to create more time for Q&A) and they thus reserve the right to amend the function as stated in the abstract – and will inform the submitter if they do so.
- The Section and Programme Chairs further reserve the right to re-assign chairs/discussants should there be a clash, or should a participant exceed their maximum number of appearances.
- The panel chair oversees the smooth functioning of the panel. This involves providing clear instructions to each speaker before the start of the panel about their allotted time, making sure that each speaker keeps to their time, and moderating audience questions and discussions. It is the responsibility of the panel chair to ensure adequate time for discussions. The discussant’s task usually involves three things: a) discuss important takeaways from the panel, b) highlight key insights of each paper, and c) provide pointed critiques and suggestions. We encourage detailed feedback on papers to be provided by email after the event. The panel chair decides the time allotted to the discussant, but this is usually not more than 10 minutes.
- All panel/roundtable submissions, including individual paper abstracts, must be formatted as per the requirements below. Submissions must include the presentation title, the abstract text, and full co-authors list with their affiliations and e-mail addresses.
It is generally expected that the chair uploads the abstract for the panel/roundtable as well as all for the individual papers. They are also considered to be the contact person for the whole panel/roundtable, and any communication related to the panel/roundtable will be therefore held with the submitter.
