As a Panel Chair

There are two ways to participate as a Panel Chair:

  1. Propose a Panel
  2. Volunteer to Chair a Panel put together by the Section Chairs, made up of individually submitted Papers on a similar theme.

When proposals open on 1 November a link will appear in the menu for you to propose a Panel. You must submit 4–5 Papers to a Section before the deadline of 8 January. Papers submitted as part of a Panel do not need to be resubmitted individually.

To make a proposal, you, your Discussant and your Paper presenters must have a MyECPR account. If you don’t already have one, it takes just a few clicks to create.

To propose a Panel, we need to know:

  • The Section number and/or title you wish to propose to, as listed in the Academic Programme
  • The Panel title (no more than 20 words)
  • 3–8 keywords, selected from a predetermined list, indicating the Panel’s subject, theme and scope. We use these keywords to categorise Panels (as well as Sections and Papers), enabling users to search the online programme.
  • The abstract (no more than 300 words)
  • The email address of the Panel Co-Chair (if you have one), as registered in MyECPR
  • The Discussant’s email address, as registered in MyECPR
  • The title (no more than 20 words) of each Paper
  • The abstract (no more than 300 words) of each Paper
  • 3–8 keywords, selected from a predetermined list.
  • Each Paper presenter’s email address, as registered in MyECPR
  • Each Paper Co-author’s email address, as registered in MyECPR

The Section Chairs will approve or decline Panel and Paper proposals after the deadline. Approved Papers not submitted as part of a Panel will be allocated by the Section Chairs to an appropriate Panel. Alternatively, Section Chairs will form additional Panels from individual Papers on a similar subject. Once this has been done, we will email all proposers to let them know the outcome.

If your Panel or Paper has been marked as reserved, ECPR will contact you as soon as possible should a space become available in the programme. Unfortunately it is not possible to determine when this will be.

At this point, we may need volunteer Panel Chairs. For guidance, read How to chair a Panel. If you would like to volunteer to Chair a Panel, email the Events Team.

Panel Chairs are expected to attend the Conference. Please register via our website; a link will appear when registration opens on 14 February.

Prior to the Conference, Paper presenters will upload their Paper to the ECPR website or email them to you and the Discussant. You must read each Paper in preparation.

As a Discussant

There are two ways to participate as a Discussant:

  1. Form a complete Panel with a Panel Chair, who will propose the Panel
  2. Volunteer to discuss a Panel, put together by the Section Chairs, made up of Papers on a similar theme.

After the deadline, Section Chairs approve and decline all Panels and Papers proposed, and form new Panels from individually approved Papers on a related topic. At this point, we may need volunteer Discussants. For guidance, read How to discuss a Panel. If you would like to volunteer to act as Discussant, email the Events Team.

Panel Discussants need to attend the Conference to generate conversation about each Paper. A link to register will appear on our website on 14 February.

Prior to the Conference, Paper presenters will upload their Paper to the ECPR website or email them to you and the Panel Chair. You must read each Paper in preparation.

As a Paper Presenter

When proposals open on 1 November a link will appear in the menu for you to propose a Paper. You must submit your proposal to a Section before the deadline of 8 January.  Papers submitted as part of a Panel do not need to be resubmitted individually. If your Paper has more than one author, the person making the proposal will be listed as the Paper presenter.

You and your co-authors must have MyECPR accounts. If you don’t already have one, it takes just a few clicks to create. Alternatively, your Paper can be part of a pre-formed Panel proposal, co-ordinated and submitted as a complete Panel by a Panel Chair.

To propose an individual Paper, we need to know:

  • The Section number and/or title you wish to propose to, as listed in the Academic Programme
  • The Paper title (no more than 20 words)
  • The abstract (no more than 300 words)
  • 3–8 keywords, chosen from a list on the proposal form, indicating the subject, theme and scope of your Paper. We use these keywords to categorise Papers (as well as Sections and Panels), enabling users to search the online programme.
  • The Co-author’s email address as registered in MyECPR (if applicable)

After the proposal deadline, the Section Chairs works through all Panel and Paper proposals, approving/declining/reserving them as they see fit. At this stage, they will allocate to an appropriate Panel any approved Papers not submitted as part of a Panel. Alternatively, they will form additional Panels from individual Papers on a related topic. We then email Paper proposers to let them know the outcome.

If your Panel or Paper has been marked as reserved, ECPR will contact you as soon as possible should a space become available in the programme. Unfortunately it is not possible to determine when this will be.

Once you know the outcome, you can decide whether you want to attend the Conference. If you do, you need to register and pay online before registration closes on 15 March (a registration button will appear in the menu under The Event when it opens on 14 February).

If your Paper is approved and you cannot attend, please email the Events Team immediately so we can reshuffle Papers if necessary. If one of your co-authors can attend and present in your place, email the Events Team to let us know they should be listed as Presenter.

Please upload your full Paper to the ECPR website via your MyECPR account or email it to the Panel Chair, Discussant and fellow Paper givers before 1 June to give your fellow Panellists time to read it. And that’s it – we look forward to welcoming you to the Conference!
