The Call for Papers and posters is now open and closes on 1st February.

Before you propose a paper/poster, please read the congress concept, the rules below, and then browse the list of panels on the website.


Proposals must consist of

  • a paper/poster title

  • the name/s and email address/es of author/s

  • a short abstract of fewer than 300 characters

  • a long abstract of fewer than 250 words

Delegates may only convene one panel, although they may also make one presentation, be a discussant in one panel, and/or present a poster.

All proposals must be made via online form (not email). Go to the panel page you are interested in. Click on the 'propose a paper' link beneath the long abstract, to make your proposal direct to that panel.

On submission of the proposal, the proposing author (but not the co-authors) will receive an automated email confirming receipt. If you do not receive this email, please first check the Login environment - Cocoa (see toolbar above right) to see if your proposal is there. If it is, it simply means your confirmation email got spammed/lost; if it is not, you will need to re-submit, as for some reason the process was not completed. Subsequent communication will be with all authors of a paper.

Proposals will be marked as pending until the end of the Call for papers/posters. Convenors will then be asked to make their decisions over the papers proposed to their panel by mid-March and to communicate those to the proposers, marking them up within the login environment (Cocoa). Papers which are neither accepted nor rejected, but marked for 'transfer', will then be considered by the Scientific Committee to see where else they might fit in the conference programme. There is no guarantee that such papers can be re-housed. We aim to resolve all transfers by end February.

While we cannot prevent you from making multiple proposals, we would encourage colleagues to make just one. The 'transfer process' aims to ensure that good papers will have a chance to be presented even if the panel to which they were initially proposed has no space.
