Join us March 26th - 29th, 2014 in Toronto, Canada for our 55th Annual Convention! Proposals are now being accepted through this site with a deadline of June 1st, 2013. Our convention theme this year is "Spaces and Places: Geopolitics in an Era of Globalization". We encourage you to read the full call for papers prepared by our President, Harvey Starr.
Of course, we are on a new proposal submission system this year, so, we encourage you to submit early so that you can familiarize yourself with the new system before the deadline approaches. Even if you're not ready to actually submit your full proposal today, you can start the process to get a feel for how it all works.
All of our proposals require a title, an abstract and three to ten tags. Titles must be less than 50 words while abstracts cannot exceed 200 words. Panel proposals require a chair and a discussant as well as five complete papers before they will be accepted by our form. Lastly, roundtables require a chair and at least three participants - a discussant is optional.
Please be aware that ISA enforces submission limits for the number of times a single person can appear on proposals for our Annual Convention. You can only be an author on two papers, and you can be on no more than four total items. Note that if you are a chair and a discussant on the same submitted panel, that only counts as a single appearance, but, if you are an author on that same panel, that would count as two appearances.
