Following the practice that has followed in the past conferences, there will be provision for Special sessions and we invite proposals for special sessions.
Guidelines for submitting a proposal for special sessions
The proposals may be sent to the Secretariat email.
Speakers need to register only after receiving the decision of the Selection Committee regarding your submission.
We are committed to making the 20th Anniversary Conference a truly Global event with ample participation and engagement of early career researchers, especially from the Global South. To accomplish this, we appeal to all special session organisers (especially if it is externally funded) to consider offering travel support to at least two early career scholars from the Global South (other than those in your panel) with accepted papers to facilitate their participation (you may reimburse the cost of air travel; the local organisers will provide the local hospitality). Please indicate your response to this request in the proposal so that we can connect them with you.
A proposal for special sessions could be submitted by 30 May 2023.
