General Submission Notes
Proposals will be accepted in English only. Acknowledgment of the receipt of your submission will be sent by e-mail to the corresponding author. Program Committee decisions will be sent in February 2019. Details regarding the scheduling of accepted submissions will be sent in March 2019. The final program will be announced in April 2019.
Paper presentations (15-18 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. A paper proposal should include a 250-word abstract (for publication in the conference program) and a 1500-word summary (for the program review committee).
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 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. A poster proposal must include a 250-word abstract (for publication in the conference program), and a 1500-word summary (for the program review committee).
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 publication 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.
Discussion Sessions (75-90 minutes) are intended to provide an interactive venue for exploring ideas that bear on the development of knowledge, broadly conceived. They may be formatted as debates, panels, or organized discussions; and may focus on any well-defined topic. Submissions must include a 400-word abstract (for publication in the conference program), and a 1500-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.
