Call for papers

To download the full Call for Papers in pdf-format, click here

Abstracts are invited for the sessions and round tables listed below by September 30, 2011. Abstracts of no more than 300 words should be sent directly to the appropriate session or round table chair(s); abstracts are to be headed with the applicant’s name, professional affiliation [graduate students in brackets], and title of paper or position. Submit with the abstract a short curriculum vitae, home and work addresses, email addresses, telephone and fax numbers.

Sessions will consist of either five papers or four papers and a respondent, with time for dialogue and questions at the end. Each paper should be limited to a 20 minute presentation. Abstracts for session presentations should define the subject and summarise the argument to be presented in the proposed paper. The content of that paper should be the product of well-documented original research that is primarily analytical and interpretative rather than descriptive in nature.

Round tables will consist of five participants and an extended time for dialogue, debate and discussion among chair(s) and public. Each discussant will have 10 minutes to present a position. Abstracts for round table debates should summarize the position to be taken in the discussion.

Papers may not have been previously published, nor presented in public. Only one submission per author will be accepted. All abstracts will be held in confidence during the selection process. In addition to the 23 thematic sessions and 4 round tables listed below, open sessions may be announced. With the author’s approval, thematic session chairs may choose to recommend for inclusion in an open session an abstract that was submitted to, but does not fit into, a thematic session.

Session and round table chairs will notify all persons submitting abstracts of the acceptance or rejection of their proposals and comment on them by October 31, 2011. Authors of accepted paper proposals must submit the complete text of their papers (for a 20 minute presentation) to their session chair or complete draft of discussion position (for a 10 minute presentation) to their round table chair by March 15, 2012. Chairs may suggest editorial revisions to a paper or discussion position in order to make it satisfy session or round table guidelines and will return it with comments to the speaker by April 15,2012. Speakers must complete any revisions and distribute copies of their paper or discussion position to the chair and the other speakers or discussants by April 30,2012. Chairs reserve the right to withhold a paper or a discussion position from the program if the author has refused to comply with these guidelines. It is the responsibility of the chair(s) to inform speakers of these guidelines, as well as of the general expectations for both a session and participation in this meeting. Each speaker is expected to fund his or her own registration, travel and expenses to Brussels, Belgium.
