CALL FOR PANELS

This year we are experimenting with a two-part submission process intended to make the conference more participant-driven and democratic. The first step is this Call is for PANELS. We are also issuing a call for Pre/Post Conference Workshop proposals at this time. Proposals may be submitted until Sept. 1, 2018.

Conference panels may be proposed by anyone interested in organizing one. All panels are 90 minutes long and may take the form of a traditional paper session (4 presenters); a roundtable (up to 6 presenters making brief remarks that foster lively conversation); or a jam session (up to 8 participants in a nontraditional format of the organizer’s choosing that includes significant audience participation). These panels may be of two types:

· A preformed panel that lists all participants and is ready for the conference program as it stands.

· A panel seeking participants, to be filled by its organizers through the conference call for papers released in October. We expect the majority of accepted panels to be of this kind.

Panel proposals should be submitted electronically. The ASLE conference committee will select a wide range of proposed panels appropriate to the conference theme and panel proposers will be notified of success by October 1, 2018. ASLE will then distribute by email and on our website a Call for Papers listing all conference panels seeking paper proposals. Those who wish to participate in the conference may submit a proposal for consideration for inclusion within one of these panels, or for one of the open topic panels to be organized by the conference committee. Panel organizers will inform paper proposers if a submission has been accepted no later than January 10, 2019. All paper proposals that do not find an initial home will also be considered for placement in one of the open topic panels. Paper submissions for these panels begin Oct. 15 and ends Dec. 15.  Please email us at info@asle.org with any questions.


This form is to propose a panel theme seeking participants, to be filled by its organizers through the conference call for papers released in October.

Panel organizers will inform paper proposers if a submission has been accepted no later than January 10, 2019.

To encourage institutional diversity and exchange, all panels must include participants from more than one institution and from more than one academic level/sector. Multiple panel submissions are allowed, but only one paper submission is allowed per person, as participants can present only once during the conference (conference workshop participation and chairing a panel are not included). If necessary, a panel chair may substitute another presenter if one of the original submitters drops out, but must notify program chairs immediately at the email below.  

Proposals must be submitted online; in cases in which this requirement poses a significant difficulty, please contact us at info@asle.org.
