RULES FOR OPEN PANEL PROPOSALS
According to the IUAES tradition, open panels allow anthropologists from different countries to meet around a thematic proposal.
- Each panel should have at least two and maximum three co-convenors (panel organisers) linked to institutions from different countries.
- At least one of the convenors must hold a PhD.
- Each participant may convene only once (be that a panel, a workshop or a plenary session). It is not allowed to submit more than one panel proposal.
- All panel convenors must be members of IUAES and have paid their membership fee for year 2019. The membership fee will be collected together with the conference fee.
- Convenors of approved panels must pay their conference fee by 2 April 2019 in order to have their panels included into the programme.
- When proposing a panel sponsored by any of the IUAES commissions, please request the commission chairs for a panel approval before submitting it. In such a case the commission name must be appended to the title of the proposed panel, e.g. Making Tourism Work for the Poor [Commission on the Anthropology of Tourism].
- Convenors may optionally propose one discussant to their panel. All discussants must be members of IUAES and pay a conference fee. An Inter-Congress participant may be a discussant and present a paper – these two activities can be combined – but not within the same panel.
- The language for all proposals and presentations is English.
- After the notification of the approved panels made by 15 December 2018, the call for papers to open panels will be open via the online form on the Inter-Congress website (20 December 2018 to 15 February 2019). It is the convenors’ responsibility to select papers for presentation.
- Each session of a panel can have 4 to 5 oral presentations – 4 presentations is a minimum number for a panel to come to existence. Convenors need to observe the national and institutional diversity of the submitted papers, thus guaranteeing the participation of researchers from different countries.
- Each panel can have maximum 3 sessions.
The criteria for open panel proposals approval
1. The selection of the open panel proposals is the responsibility of the Inter-Congress’s Scientific Committee. The decision will be based on:
- compliance with the rules (see above)
- quality of the proposal (clarity, cohesion and academic rigour)
2. The Scientific Committee will pay attention to different anthropological traditions and topics.
How to submit
- All submissions must be made via the online form.
- The convenor submitting the proposal (Convenor 1) will be first asked to complete the registration form in order to receive the Registration ID before s/he can precede to the second form (Panel proposal submission).
- The proposal includes:
- Panel title (please keep it concise) with the information whether the panel is sponsored by an IUAES commission – in such a case the commission name must be appended to the title of the proposed panel, e.g. Making Tourism Work for the Poor [Commission on the Anthropology of Tourism].
- Short panel abstract (up to 300 characters with spaces).
- Long panel abstract (up to 250 words).
- 3 to 5 keywords
- Names, affiliations and contact details of the co-convenors (please note that provided e-mails will be used during the registration process).
- Name and affiliation of the discussant (optionally).
Responsibilities of the panel convenors
- Chair the panel (all convenors will be co-chairs).
- Evaluate and select papers for presentation via the online form on the Inter-Congress website by indicating whether to accept/reject/transfer proposals by 10 March 2019 (paper abstracts indicated as ‘transfer’ are those which convenors find valuable but not fitting their panel).
- Organise the panel sessions, including the order of the presentations which can be done via the online form once the papers are approved.
- Decide about the time allocated to presentations (equally to each, not less than 10 minutes per paper).
- Coordinate the activities of the panel during the Inter-Congress.
- Keep the participants of the panel informed: of a day, hour and place of their presentations; of the speaking order; of the time they have been allocated; of the obligation to register; of any late changes and any other information related to the panel.
- Inform the Organising Committee about the panelists withdrawals.
