Abstracts can be submitted starting December 10, 2018.

Submission Deadline: February 11, 2019.  Authors will be notified of the status of their abstract by early April 2019.

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; (iv) an abstract of no more than 500 words; and (v) 2-4 keywords. The Selected Papers Committee will review abstracts in terms of significance to the field, strength of methodology/design, clarity of writing, and fit within conference topics. Some abstracts may be invited to present as a poster in a poster session instead of in a paper session. If an author submits more than one abstract, he or she may be limited to one presentation. Submit your abstract here.

If you would like to submit an organized session, please have each author submit his or her abstract as above. 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 and why the session topic would be of interest to meeting attendees. The organized session may be accepted in whole, in part (and the accepted papers assigned to other sessions), or may be rejected. Submit organized session information 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 discussion symposium proposals here.

For questions regarding the selected papers and symposia please email the Program Chair, President-Elect Gal Hochman (gal.hochman@rutgers.edu). For questions regarding the website or submission issues, please email webmaster Richard Vyn (rvyn@uoguelph.ca).
