Those who are submitting a paper individually (not as part of pre-formed sessions) are required to submit a 350-word abstract, in addition to their contact information, division, and A/V requests if necessary. The abstract for an individual paper must explain the presentation’s purpose, methodology, sources, argument and specific contribution to scholarship in the field. In composing your abstract, please bear in mind the time allotted for your presentation (15–18 minutes for a paper in a standard panel). The Program Committee will assign accepted proposals to a session based on recommendations from the Division Chairs.
Graduate students who are submitting a proposal for inclusion in a Graduate Student Lightning Session should submit a 150-word abstract describing their proposed presentation (a summary of research, a specific case study, or a methodological problem), and A/V requests if necessary. Please note that proposals cannot be accepted from graduate students who are also submitting a proposal for a traditional panel session.
