Selected Paper Proposals: Selected paper submissions should include: (i) the title of paper; (ii) names and institutional affiliations of the author and co-authors; (iii) name and e-mail address of paper presenter; and (iv) an abstract of no more than 500 words. The Selected Papers Committee will review abstracts in terms of significance to the field, strength of methodology/design, clarity of writing, fit within conference topics, and (if necessary) the number of presentations proposed by the paper presenter. If submissions are abundant, some abstracts may be invited to present as a poster instead of in a paper session. Submit your Selected Paper submission here.

If you would like to submit an organized session, please have each author submit his or her abstract as above and ask them to choose "Yes" for "Is this part of an organized session?". The organizer must (by the submission deadline) submit: a list of all titles that belong in the session, a title for the session, and a brief (a sentence or two) explanation of the topical relationship among the papers in the session. The organized session may be accepted in whole, in part (and the accepted papers assigned to other sessions), or may be rejected. Submit your Organized Sessions here.

Discussion Symposium Proposals: A discussion symposium allows a more fluid and multilateral format for engagement with works in progress or “hot topics” in the field. A symposium may include prepared questions for two or more panelists, a debate, a roundtable, or another format. Regardless, half of the time should be allocated for discussion with or questions from the audience. To propose a discussion symposium, submit: names of the panelists, the title of the symposium, and a paragraph describing what you would do in the symposium. Submit your Discussion Symposium here.
