Discussant Responsibilities, Panels and Roundtables at ISA Conventions & Conferences

The primary role of the discussant is to read carefully each of the papers that he/she receives prior to the start of the ISA Conventions & conferences (at least five days) and comment upon these papers in a constructive manner. Like his/her fellow panelists/participants, the discussant must abide by the panel chair's stipulations regarding the length of presentation and comments.

By accepting responsibility for discussing a panel or roundtable, the discussant agrees to inform the chair and Program Chair(s) at the earliest possible date of any changes in the status of availability or travel funding which will or is likely to prevent participation.
