Submission information

Individual papers and panels are possible, but all proposals must be submitted through the online Open Conference System from 1 December 2014 – 9 February 2015.

Early submission is strongly encouraged. There are to be no email submissions of abstracts addressed to Working Group Co-Chair.

Those interested in participating should submit a 150-200 word abstract, labeled with paper title, author, affiliation, email address to IAMCR, as well as to chair John A. Lent (jlent[at]temple.edu) and vice chair Geisa Fernandes (geisaf[at]hotmail.com).

Deadline : 9 February 2015

Submissions Format

All proposals must include title, author/coordinator name(s), institutional affiliation(s) and full contact information (mailing address, email address, and telephone number).

For individual or co-authored papers, applicants must submit a 300-500 word abstract.

For panel proposals, the panel coordinator must submit a well-defined statement of purpose (150-300 words), a complete list of panel participants, and full abstracts (as above) for each presentation in one document. A proposal for a panel should provide a panel title, a framing text (with the overall idea of the panel in maximum 500 words) and short abstracts for the including papers with titles and authors. A panel chair and a discussant can also be proposed. The panel framing text and the individual paper abstracts need to be submitted separately.

For all applicants: Please indicate if you would be willing to chair a session.

Languages

The Comic Art Working Group accepts abstracts in English, French, Spanish and Portuguese.

It is expected that for the most part, only one (1) abstract will be submitted per person for consideration by the Conference. And, under no circumstances should there be more than two (2) abstracts bearing the name of the same applicant either individually or as part of any group of authors. Please note also that the same abstract or another version with minor variations in title or content must not be submitted to other Sections or Working Groups of the Association for consideration, after an initial submission. Such submissions will be deemed to be in breach of the conference guidelines and will be automatically rejected by the Open Conference System, by the relevant Head or by the Conference Programme Reviewer. Such applicants risk being removed entirely from the conference programme.

Evaluation

  • Submitted abstracts will generally be evaluated on the basis of:
  • theoretical contribution,
  • methods,
  • quality of writing,
  • literature review,
  • relevance of the submission to the work of the Ethics of Society and Ethics of Communication Working Group
  • originality and/or significance of the work.

The Working Group encourages senior scholars to take part in moderation of panels and chairing sessions. Please let us know if you are interested. We might also contact you.

Sections and Working Groups are responsible for most of the content of IAMCR conferences. Their heads receive proposals, manage the evaluation process, and structure their programmes.
