Requirements for Individual Paper Proposals

Proposals for individual papers will be considered, but the Program Committee in general will give preference to pre-organized sessions (traditional, unconventional, or open sessions). Those scholars who might ordinarily propose an individual paper are encouraged to propose Open Sessions themselves or to join an Open Session. More information on Open Sessions you can find here.

Proposals must include:

  1. A one-page abstract (maximum 500 words) (If your would like to be considered for the Robinson Prize, please be sure to indicate this on your abstract page AND submit your Robinson Prize application via the online Robinson Prize submission form here. For Robinson Prize eligibility rules, and the Robinson Prize procedures click here.)
  2. A one-page short CV with current contact information (maximum 300 words)

The two pages should be submitted as one file (abstract on page 1 and CV on page 2).
Please name this file with your last name and the word “proposal,” e.g., “smith_proposal.pdf “.
