CEA prefers to receive all submissions (including those for special topic
panels) electronically through our conference management database housed at
the following web address:
Any other form of electronic submission will not be accepted.

Electronic submissions open on August 1st and close on November 1st.
Abstracts for proposals should be between 200 and 500 words in length and
should include a title.

Submitting electronically is a two-step process: 1) setting up a user ID,
then 2) using that ID to log in – this time to a welcome page which
provides a link for submitting proposals to the conference.

If submitting a panel, panel organizers should create user IDs for all
proposed participants.

Though CEA prefers to receive proposals through the conference database (as
it facilitates communication about the conference in a smooth and timely
matter), we will accept hard copy proposals, postmarked no later than
October 15th, via regular mail. Hard-copy proposals should include the
following information:
∑ Name
