Call for Panels and Papers
Panels and individual papers that engage with the Conference Theme are invited from all areas of Asian Studies. We encourage panels and papers in the following areas:
- Anthropology, sociology and inter-disciplinary studies
- Cultural studies
- Economics, trade and business
- Ecology and environment
- Language, education and communication
- Literature and translation
- Politics and international relations
- Resource politics
- Science policy and collaborative research.
Please submit your full panel proposals or individual paper abstracts online. Panel proposals and paper abstracts should be between 200 and 300 words. Download and read the Guidelines for Submission here.
Submitting a Panel Proposal
The deadline for panel submissions is 29 November 2013.
Notification of acceptance will be on or before 20 December 2013.
Panel proposals are expected to include at least 3 papers on a related theme that the Panel Convenor invites and coordinates. Further papers submitted independently before the February deadline may subsequently be added to panels, by the Conference Committee, where they fit. A panel proposal should consist of text about the panel theme (no longer than 300 words) followed by a series of paper abstracts, all in one Microsoft Word document. Please use the abstract template available to assist you in this task. We recommend that you use this template and save your proposal and the abstracts within before uploading.
Applications for panel proposals where the panel presentations will be delivered in an Asian language will be considered. Please note that this applies only to those Asian languages currently targeted within Australian educational policy contexts.
Submitting a separate Abstract (for a paper not yet assigned to a Panel)
The deadline for other paper abstract submissions is 07 February 2014.
Notification of acceptance will be on or before 28 February 2014.
Paper abstracts are to be submitted as Microsoft Word documents using a specific format - a sample abstract template is available to assist you in this task. We recommend that you use this template and save your abstract before uploading.
Once you have made an online submission, you will receive an email containing your personal 'Ei' access key. This access key can be used to enter the 'Presenters Zone' where you can view or make changes to your submitted abstract until the submission deadline. Please note that once panel and paper abstracts have been accepted by the Committee, no further changes can be made.
Conditions of Acceptance
It is a condition of acceptance of the abstract that the presenting author must register to attend the Conference and present the paper. Abstracts submitted before payment of registration are eligible for an offer of acceptance (by 28 February 2014) but final acceptance (and publication as a conference abstract) requires registration by the deadline of 28 March 2014. All authors must attend at least the full day of their presentation.
Submission of abstracts implies the author’s agreement to publish the abstract in all Conference publications including the website.
Acceptance of abstracts does not imply any payment from the Conference Organising Committee. Authors must arrange and pay their own accommodation, travel etc. to attend the Conference.
Decisions made by the Review Committee and moderated by the Conference Convenors are final.
Your assistance in distributing this information to other interested parties will be appreciated.
