PAPER

Paper presentations (15 minutes) may be focused on either empirical findings or theoretical analysis. The program review committee will select individual submissions and schedule a series of Paper Sessions that include 3–5 papers on similar topics. These sessions will have a moderator appointed by the program committee to introduce speakers and keep things on time. A paper proposal should include a 200 word abstract (for inclusion in the conference program) and a 1000 word summary (for the program review committee).

POSTER

Poster presentations may be focused on either empirical findings or theoretical analysis. The conference usually holds two poster sessions held on separate days. The sessions are organized around broad themes derived from the 40–50 posters selected for each session. Posters are mounted for display in a high-traffic area for the entire day of the session, but presenting authors need only attend their poster during the official session near the end of the day. A poster proposal should include a 1000 word summary for the program review committee.

SYMPOSIUM SESSION

Symposium proposals (75–90 minutes) should describe 3-4 presentations organized around a single topic. Symposium sessions will have a named organizer who may serve as moderator, and may include a named discussant who will comment on the presented papers. A symposium proposal should include a 400 word abstract (for inclusion in the conference program), and a 1500 word summary (for the program review committee) that describes each of the presentations and the session as a whole.

They may be formatted as debates, panels, or organized discussions; and may focus on any well-defined topic. Submissions should include a 400 word abstract (for inclusion in the conference program), and a 1000 word summary (for the program review committee) that describes the topic and structure of the session and the role of each of the discussion leaders.
