Submissions welcome from ongoing and new IAPL members! Anyone can join!
Anyone submitting an abstract for general, proposed, organized, or invited sessions must be a current member of the IAPL.
One submission per person only. Conference participants can occupy only one place on the program each year.
General and proposed session submissions are evaluated by the IAPL Executive Committee.
Notifications by e-mail are sent by the IAPL Executive Director in early February. Make sure that your incoming e-mail filter includes messages sent from "email@example.com".
When possible, invited organized sessions will also be announced in advance affording the possibility of submitting directly to the invited session organizer. Some years we will not be able to post these sessions in advance.
Check the IAPL website for full paper submission details each year.
For open Submissions, choose either an individual paper submission or a proposed session submission.
The submission forms and process is entirely new this year!
1. "GENERAL SESSION" INDIVIDUAL PAPER SUBMISSIONS:
Demonstrate a clear connection to the conference theme Design for a maximum 20 minute presentation time
(1) a paper title,
(2) a brief description of the paper (75 words max),
(3) an abstract of the paper (1,000 words max),
(4) 7 keywords associated with the proposed paper submission.
2. "PROPOSED SESSION" GROUP (MULTIPLE SPEAKERS) SUBMISSIONS
Proposed Sessions are also welcome!
Sessions should include 4-5 speakers plus a session chair the session chair will also normally be the session proposer.
The proposer / session chair can present a 15-20 minute theme-setting paper as part of the introduction to the session. Alternatively someone else can be invited to chair the session and not present a paper at all. Or the proposer can simply serve as one of the session speakers.
The name of the session chair must be included with the session proposal.
Proposers will submit the names, member ID, and e-mail of each proposed speaker. The specific request for detailed speaker information will then be sent automatically to the proposed speaker to complete (using a Member ID, same email as indicated by the proposer, and confirmed current membership).
Each speaker will be invited to submit: a paper title, a brief description, seven keywords, and an abstract.
The proposer will be able to structure the session. However no speaker should be allowed more than 20 minutes speaking time.
Proposers should be aware that although the session is evaluated as a whole, each abstract is also evaluated independently. Occasionally, one or more papers is not accepted in the review process.
Proposers will be asked to keep their participants informed of the disposition of their papers for the session -- and proposers will be responsible for assuring that each speaker covers membership dues, registration, participant form, and related conference information.
All persons included in a proposed session must confirm that they will indeed attend the conference if their papers are accepted for the session.
