The Call for Papers is now closed.


All accepted panels should be open to paper proposals through the website - panels should not be organised as 'closed' sessions.
When the call for papers opens, papers will be proposed to specific panels. Convenors will receive a summary email of the proposal and are welcome to acknowledge proposals by email or ask contributors to edit their abstracts by logging in themselves. When the call for papers is over, convenors must indicate their decisions over whether to accept/reject proposals through the login environment. If an author later emails to withdraw their paper, the paper should be marked as 'Withdrawn' in the login environment. The papers can be placed in running order via the login environment.
Papers that do not fit the criteria of a specific panel might be transferred by panel convenors to the Scientific Committee. These papers might then be allocated to ad hoc panels, time and space permitting.

Editing your panel

Panel proposers can use the login link in the toolbar above to edit their proposals. Later, when panels have been accepted/rejected convenors are requested to administer their panels via this login environment. Convenors should log in to state any specific timing requests to do with their panel; to add the names of chairs/discussants; and to manage the paper proposals. Co-convenors cannot be added/removed nor can panels be withdrawn through this environment - please email cham(at) to do this.
You may also add the names of any chairs or discussants, using the convention of Firstname Lastname (Institution). If chair/discussant roles are to be taken by panel convenors, then please do not enter your own names there - it is assumed that convenors will take these roles if other names are not listed.

Number of papers per session

The maximum number of papers per session is FOUR. If you would like to propose multiple session panels in order to increase the number of participants, you may do so, but please specify this in your proposal. Participants may only make one presentation, although they may also convene one panel or be discussant in one panel.

Timing of presentations

How you allocate the time of your sessions and the format you choose (roundtable, discussion, pre-circulation of papers, etc) is largely your decision. We are unable to represent specific timings of individual papers in our programme, but we would request that you follow the order of papers as they appear in the programme.

Pre-circulation of papers

Many convenors are keen to pre-circulate completed papers. To facilitate this and save on loads of email traffic, authors can upload PDFs of their papers within on-line, which will then show as a downloadable file beneath their abstract on the public panel page on this site. It is your choice whether you instruct your presenters to make use of this.

Communication between authors/convenors

Convenor/author email addresses are not shown on the panel pages for anti-spam reasons. However there is an in-built secure email messaging system. If you cannot work that, please email cham(at) to obtain relevant email addresses.

For any queries regarding the above, please email: cham(at)
