A panel proposal includes a chair, three or four presentations based on written papers, and a discussant. A chair presents the panel members, ensure that presenters do not exceed their allocated time, and direct the public Q&A after all panel members have spoken. A discussant offers a constructive critique of the written papers at the end of all presentations.
To submit a panel proposal, the panel organizer must fill out a panel proposal form and send it by attachment to [email protected] and [email protected]. The form includes the panel title, as well as the coordinates, paper titles, 500 word abstracts and 100 word biographical statements of all panel members.
Each panel member must also fill out a separate Fact Sheet online.
If a paper-based presentation contained in the panel proposal has more than one author, a separate Fact Sheet must be filled out for each author intending to attend the Convention if accepted.
