Proposal Types for the ISA Hong Kong 2017 International Conference

Panels

Panels must have a title, abstract and tag words as well as 4-5 papers (with a preference of 5 papers - complete with title, tags, abstract and authors) and at least 1 chair and discussant. The Program Chair preference is that panels have 5 papers. Titles need to be less than 50 words and abstracts need to be less than 200 words.

Please note that papers submitted on panels should not be submitted a second time independently of the panel. If the panel is not accepted, the papers submitted on the panel go into the normal wait pool with all of our other papers.

Roundtables

Roundtables are similar to panels but participants do not present papers. At least 1 chair and 4 participants are needed to submit a panel, along with title, tags and abstract.  Titles need to be less than 50 words and abstracts need to be less than 200 words.

Papers

Papers are the foundation of the conference and can be submitted individually or within a larger panel proposal. Papers generally need a title, abstract, three tags and the author(s) to submit. Titles need to be less than 50 words and abstracts need to be less than 200 words.

(Note that, if you have a paper that was submitted on a panel, you should not submit the paper independently a second time.) 

Innovative Panels

Innovative panel proposals will need a title, chair, tags and abstract (200 words), and additional information about the "vision" behind the proposal. Depending on the overall format of the panel, innovatives can also accommodate up to 5 discussants, 15 participants and 5 papers.
