Intended participants should submit either a paper abstract or a panel proposal. A panel proposal is a proposal to form a panel in which three (or four) papers would be presented. A panel proposal should include a description of the topic of the panel, and the abstracts of the three (or four) papers to be presented in the panel. A panel should have three (or four) speakers each presenting a paper, and one moderator who would serve as both chair and discussant for the panel.

A committee will consider the abstracts, and the authors will be notified shortly thereafter.
