Instructions for Submitting an Organized Paper Session

Paper sessions consist of a set of papers pre-organized on a given topic. There can be no more than 4 papers in a single panel session. If a session includes a discussant, there can be no more than 3 papers in that session. Each paper presentation will be allotted 30 minutes on the program, including time for a brief introduction, for the presentation, and for questions and discussion, which will follow immediately after each presentation.

Required Materials: 

  • text of the short (100-word) and long (500-word) abstract for the session as a whole (to be pasted into text boxes)
  • presenter affiliation and contact information, and the title and text of the short abstract for each paper on the panel
  • 2 Word .doc files: 
    • a file containing the short abstract for the session as a whole
    • a file containing the all of the paper short abstracts, in sequence of presentation

Proposal Process: The path for submitting the proposal begins on the 2011 Annual Meeting page, with the link for "submitting a presentation or session proposal online." The chair of the session must use that path to submit online her registration, registration fee payment, and the organized session proposal form, including long and short abstracts for the panel as a whole, as well as contact information, titles, and short abstracts for each presenter and paper on the panel.

All participants in the session must provide their proposal information to the chair well before the deadline, and must separately submit their own registration and registration fee payments. Registration may be accessed from the 2011 Annual Meeting page, or from the Calendar.

As noted above, you must attach two Word documents to the online proposal form. Before you begin your submission, please prepare the Word documents using AFS style so you can attach them to the form later in the process.

You must submit your proposal no later than March 31, 2011.
