Our friendly Events Team are on hand to assist throughout the event via virtual helpdesk on the event platform. 


Important: Please ensure you are logged into the event platform with the same email address as the one you have registered for the event with.

Get Started

Conference format

We will stream all in-person Panels and headline events online. These will be available to all conference participants via our event platform – simply head to  On Now and follow the link to join.

The format of each Panel and activity is indicated in the programme with the following icons:

  In-person Panel or activity
  Virtual Panel or activity

You can also search the programme by Panel code – PRA for in-person Panels held in Prague and VIR for virtual Panels.

Guidance for Panel Chairs and Discussants

Prepare for your participation in the role of a Panel Chair or Discussant with our useful guide.

Attending in Prague if your Panels are virtual

If all Panels in which you have a participating role are taking place virtually, please consider your environmental footprint and avoid travelling to Prague.

Please note that the virtual participation fee (both participant and observer) covers online participation only.

Code of Conduct

We think that everyone deserves a positive event experience. Please take a few moments to read our Code of Conduct which outlines our expectations regarding the conduct of participants at all our events.

Get ready

Upload your Paper
Please note that uploading your Paper via My ECPR constitutes an agreement for ECPR to publish the Paper on the event platform, which will be accessible to all participants.

Please upload your Paper (in PDF format and in English) well ahead of your presentation so that your fellow Panel attendees have time to prepare comments and questions.

  1. Head to My Events in your My ECPR account.
  2. Click Manage Paper > Browse > Select your Paper > Open/OK > Upload.
  3. Click View Document to ensure that it has been uploaded successfully

You can also use this facility to replace your Paper or remote it after the event.

Have trouble uploading your Paper?

Contact our Events Team.

Prefer to share your Paper with fellow panellists directly?

Please email your Paper to your Panel Chair.

To access uploaded Papers on your Panel, log in to the event platform and browse the Papers tab under  Programme. If available, click the Download Full Paper button on the Paper information page to get the PDF.
