Guidelines for Submission
Thank you for your interest in submitting a Paper/Panel Proposal for LASA2013- Towards a New Social Contract? taking place from May 29 – June 1 in Washington, DC. We are delighted that you have chosen to participate actively in this Congress and we look forward to reading your proposal.
When submitting panel and individual paper proposal, please follow the five participation rules described below:
Rule 1: Participation Limitation
- LASA Participants are limited to one paper per Congress. If a participant has submitted an individual proposal, s/he may not be added to a panel proposal. Additionally, if a participant is a co-author, that paper counts as their only paper.
- Participants can only have 2 active participations per Congress (not counting being an Organizer). The participation may take the form of paper presenter, discussant or chair role. A participant is able to be a part of a workshop and a panel. (Section participants are allowed 3 active participations per Congress).
- Panel proposals can only have up to five papers per Panel.
- Travel grant requests can only be sent by a participant who has not been selected to receive a travel grant in the last 3 Congresses.
Rule 2: Membership Requirement
The following rules apply depending on the type of submission:
- Individual submissions: The individual submitter must be a LASA member to be able to submit a proposal and a travel grant request.
- Panel submissions: At least one participant in the panel must be a LASA member to be able to submit proposals and travel grant requests.
- Section panel submissions: All participants in the panel must be LASA members and be current members of that specific Section.
Rule 3: Preregistration
Once your proposal has been approved, all participants are required to preregister for the Congress before March 29th, 2013. If the participant does not preregister, they will be removed from the Program Book and will be unable to present at the Congress. Additionally, panels may be cancelled due to insufficient paper presenters.
Rule 4: Paper Delivery
As a paper presenter, you have two important obligations:
- To ensure that the members of your panel, especially discussants, receive your paper in time to read it carefully prior to the meeting; and
- To submit your paper for congress proceedings and memories. Note: Your paper should not be considered published because it is posted online.
Rule 5: Panel Schedule
Panels are scheduled every 2 hours starting at 8:30 am on Thursday and concluding at 6:15 pm on Saturday. Participants are expected to be available for presenting during this time. Please note that scheduling requests cannot be honored.
