Proposing a Panel

Deadline for proposals: 10 February 2021, midnight GMT

Good to know

  • Panels provisionally proposed as part of accepted Sections must be submitted through this process.
  • Papers submitted as part of a Panel do not need to be resubmitted individually.

Open Section

  • Accepts Panel and individual Paper proposals that do not fit into any of the listed Sections. 
  • Also welcomes proposals of varying formats, including roundtable-style discussions, book presentations or critique sessions.

What you'll need

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

  • The Section number and/or title you wish to propose to, as listed in the Academic Programme
  • The title of your Panel (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 500 words)
  • The email address of the Panel Co-Chair (if you have one), as registered in MyECPR
  • The email address of the Discussant’s as registered in MyECPR
  • The title of each Paper (no more than 20 words)
  • The abstract of each Paper (no more than 500 words)
  • 3–8 keywords for each Paper, selected from a predetermined list, indicating the Paper’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.
  • Each Paper presenter’s email address, as registered in MyECPR
  • Each Paper Co-author’s email address, as registered in MyECPR (if applicable)

What happens next

After the deadline, Section Chairs approve/decline/reserve all Panels and Papers proposed. 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. 

The Academic Convenors may use their discretion to reallocate Panels and Papers to other Sections and Panels as required. Section Chairs may, therefore, be asked to accommodate new Panels in their Sections, and Panel Chairs may be asked to accommodate extra Papers within their Panels. Similarly, Section Chairs may also be asked to reduce the number of their Panels and rearrange their Papers accordingly.

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