Call for Proposals Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How many conference sessions may I present in? 
A: You may submit only one proposal to the Program Committee, and your name may appear on the conference program only once as a presenter. However, you may also serve as a moderator, although not for your own panel, and if invited you may speak on a panel honoring another scholar.

Q: What do we mean by keywords for a proposal? 
A: The keywords denote the main topic or topics with which your presentation aligns or how you would like your research to be categorized. We will use the keywords to 1) match abstracts to Program Committee evaluators based on research expertise and 2) to group presentations within the conference schedule. Examples:ballet, tango, identity. 

Q: How should I list presenters to a roundtable?
A: Click “Roundtable” in the first row of radio buttons. Enter the name of the roundtable and keywords for the roundtable in the “General Information” section. Under the Presenters section, put the abstract for the roundtable under “Author 1” (this will be the contact for the roundtable). Add additional authors for everyone on the roundtable. In authors 2 and onward, in the abstract section say “participant on this roundtable” since you only need to submit one abstract for the roundtable. However, if your individual panelists need or want to include their own presentation titles or abstracts, they can do so but should make it clear that is what is happening. 

Q: Does the conference offer remote participation for presenters?
A: Given recent U.S. government action on immigration, the host institution is looking into the technical possibilities of remote participation for delegates in extenuating circumstances and situations of duress. We will consider remote requests on a case-by-case basis. Please submit a proposal through the current online form, and under the technical requirements section, explain your situation and need to present remotely.
