News and Updates from FPA

ISA Headquarters posted on May 08, 2014 16:11
Paper submissions for the Human Rights and Change conference are now open. Please make sure that you submit your paper by 6 June to allow your other panel members time to read it in advance of the conference.

We handle paper uploads directly through our website at You will find the option to upload your paper on your personal schedule page. Please note that we only accept PDF files and that they can be no more than 10mb in size. 

To access papers uploaded to the archive, simply browse HR's online program. For presentations with a paper in the archive, you will see the option to "Download" the paper when viewing the details of the presentation online.

Lastly, we encourage you to contact your fellow panelists and either email them a copy of the paper directly, or tell them when you have uploaded it to the archive. To contact your panel, go to the panel details in the online program, or click on the item in your schedule. There, you will see an "Email Participants" option that will create a comma-separated list of the email addresses of participants on your panel.

Further, there have been questions regarding the presentations themselves. Each panel session is 90 minutes. There should be at least 30 minutes reserved for questions (and ideally 40). You will thus need to time your presentations accordingly depending upon the number of papers on your panel, giving equal time to the discussant. Panel chairs are responsible for timekeeping, and may want to contact the other panel members in advance to agree on timing and presentation line-up.

We look forward to seeing you next month.
