How to submit a Paper Proposal

In order to submit proposals for papers, first identify the symposium or symposia in which you would like to participate. Since symposia are organized along 16 thematic areas, we hope that you can easily find a symposium fitting your research interests. If you are interested in a particular topic, keyword or convener, you can use the search function of our website to find the most appropriate venue for presenting your paper.
Once you have identified the symposium or symposia in which you would like to participate, please send your proposals for papers using this online form.

We would like to call your attention to the expanded conditions for multiple participation: Conveners of a symposium may also present one paper, other participants may present two papers.
After the call for papers has been closed, conveners will access all proposals submitted to their symposia and they will decide about paper acceptance. The Organizing Committee will notify presenters of this decision by December 2011.

In order to be part of the final program, all symposium conveners and paper presenters need to register and pay the Congress fee by 31 March 2012.

We have posted the Guidelines for Participants at http://ica2012.univie.ac.at/guidelines-for-participants/

Submission Deadline
The deadline for the submission of paper proposals is 31 August 2011.
No proposals will be accepted after this deadline.
Acceptance letters and notifications for those who submit paper proposals will be sent by e-mail in December 2011.
