Instructions for Submissions:
- Submit 350-500 word abstracts for 20 minute papers (approx. 4,500 words), as well as proposals for multi-participant sessions, to both Benjamin Hale and Allen Thompson by 15 February, 2017.
- Please anonymize all paper abstracts (including PDF submissions).
- Please do not submit panels without a participation commitment from all proposed participants.
- If accepted, papers must be submitted to the conference committee and to the assigned respondent by April 20.
Format of Conference:
- As is our tradition, papers are pre-reads.
- Full papers will be available on the ISEE website one month prior to the conference.
- We ask all conference participants to read all of the papers before the conference, which are then summarized by a respondent – typically another conference participant.
- For the conference presentation, Papers will be summarized by respondents (10-15 minutes) at the conference rather than read in their entirety, in order to maximize time for discussion.
- Authors typically do not present their own papers, but rather only respond to comments.
