CALL FOR PAPERS AND CLOSED PANELS, November 1st – January 30th
All the submissions will be done with the online abstract submission form in our website: www.eam2014.com, bottom ”Abstracts”. There you will also find a link to the list of open panels and peer seminars. The maximum length of all the submissions is 200 words.
You can either submit
1) A CLOSED PANEL. A CLOSED PANEL consists of between THREE and TWELVE speakers. The CHAIR(s) may present a paper if desired. A closed panel may include no more than two doctoral students. These panels are ‘closed’ in the sense that they will include only the speakers whose names are submitted by the chair – they are of course presented before a conference audience. On the online abstract form the chair(s) will supply the title and a brief description of the panel, the titles of the papers that will be presented in the panel, name and affiliation of the chair(s) and all the speakers.
2) An INDIVIDUAL PROPOSAL to join an OPEN PANEL listed on the website, www.eam2014.com, click on the bottom ”Abstracts”.
3) An INDIVIDUAL PROPOSAL to a PEER SEMINAR. Please check the list of peer seminars on the website, www.eam2014.com, please click on the bottom ”Abstracts”. For the peer seminar, participants circulate short position papers (2000 words) one month before the seminar. The papers are discussed at the seminar. There is NO audience at the peer seminar which is closed to the rest of the conference. Doctoral students may apply to participate in a seminar and this can be a good way to get accepted to the conference for people whose work is at an early stage.
4) An INDIVIDUAL PROPOSAL without specifying a panel and the organisers will assign your paper to a panel if accepted.
The participants will be informed about the acceptance of the papers by February 28th.
The official languages of the conference are English, French and German. Both papers and entire panels are accepted in all the three languages. A paper submitted to an open panel MUST be in the language of that panel.
