Call for Special Sessions ERSA 2018

The Local Organizing Committee of the 58th ERSA Congress in Cork, Ireland (August 28th – August 31st 2018) invite you to propose a Special Session to be included in the programme of next year’s conference. Please, send in your proposal before December 8th 2017.

You can receive regular updates on the Congress by following on Twitter and/or Facebook, and through the ERSA website.

We ask you to take note of the procedure and guidelines regarding Special Sessions at ERSA 2018:

What do we offer?
Special Sessions are a label of quality in the ERSA congress and we accommodate for this in several ways:

  • We aim to allow 30 minutes for each presentation slot in a Special Session
  • Each presentation in a Special Session will be assigned a discussant

What do we ask?

  • Each Special Session has a minimum of 4 registered presenters
  • Presenters apply for a special session on the basis of a draft
  • Paper or an extended abstract (deadline February 28th 2018)
  • Presentations are based on a draft paper that has been uploaded on the ERSA 2018 submission website before June 9th 2018

If a Special Session does not meet the conditions, it will still be included in the programme, labelled as an O-session.
