Proposal submission

Note on the review process on panels and individual submissions:

There will be different submission time frames for panel and individual paper submissions, starting with panel proposals (see important dates).

Note on authorship:

Authors can be first or sole author of only one paper (irrespective of the paper being an individual paper or part of a panel). There is no limit for authors being second+ author on further papers.

Submisson of panel and individual paper proposals via ConfTool

All panel and paper proposals have to be submitted via the conference management system ConfTool. Please create a user account first. Please validate your e-mail adress after having created your account. (See this PDF if you need for further information on user account creation).

Panel proposals

Panel proposal submission will start by May 02, 2018.

  • Abstracts may be up to 500 words (including references or data examples and list of contributors).
  • Please provide the title of the panel and the name(s) of the panel organizer(s).
  • Please also provide the names of contributors (requested and confirmed), including the names of the panel organizer(s) if you are contributing to the panel with a paper. Panels should consist of at least 3 papers and at most 12 papers (including discussants). You do not need to provide titles of the prospective papers in your panel.
  • Submit your panel proposal via ConfTool. After login, click on “Your submissions”, choose “Panel proposal submission” and follow the instructions in the system. You will be able to edit your panel proposal any time before the deadline. (See this PDF if you need further information on panel proposal submission).

You will be notified of the acceptance of your panel before the submission for individual papers opens, giving you the opportunity to inform contributors to your panel about the panel’s acceptance. Authors will be able to assign their paper to a panel in the submission process. We will publish the list of the accepted panels on the conference website, giving everyone the opportunity to opt for inclusion in one of the panels. The final decision if a paper which has passed the review process should be included in a panel, however, remains to be taken by the panel organizer(s).

Individual paper proposals

Individual paper proposal submission will start by August 01, 2018. More information on the submission process to be posted here.
