Rule 1: Participation Rules, Guidelines, and Limitation
A conference participant may appear on the program no more than twice, and may present only one paper as one of his/her two appearances. There can be no exceptions to this rule. Please Note: If you submit an Individual Paper proposal, it constitutes your one presentation. Being an organizer does not count as a "participant". You may organize as many panels/roundtables as you wish.
DO NOT SUBMIT AN INDIVIDUAL PAPER PROPOSAL FOR A PAPER THAT IS ALREADY PART OF AN ORGANIZED PANEL, AND DO NOT SUBMIT A PROPOSAL IF YOU ARE PRESENTING ANY PAPER ON ANY OTHER PROPOSED PANEL.
Panels entail presentation of prepared papers (distributed in advance to a discussant) on a related topic or theme, followed by structured discussion of those papers. A complete panel must have: one Chair; 3 papers (NO MORE than 3); and at least one discussant, with a maximum of 2.
Roundtables entail structured discussion of a topic/theme, without the presentation of papers. Proposals for roundtables should be submitted only when the topic clearly justifies this format. Roundtables must have: a Chair; and minimum of 3 to maximum of 5 partipants.
Each participant may only have one role on a panel or roundtable. For example, the chair of a panel cannot present a paper or serve as discussant on that panel. Being an organizer does not count as a "participant".
Special consideration will be given to panels reporting on recent field or archival research, especially those that include presentations by junior faculty and/or advanced graduate students.
Panels/roundtables that have more than one disciplinary representation are stongly encouraged.
As a rule of thumb, graduate student participants generally should be at the research-stage in their programs, and panels composed primarily of graduate students should include at least one member who has completed their terminal degree. A session made up only of students will most likely be rejected.
A panel/roundtable should not be made up of participants from only one institution.
Affiliate organizations of the ASEEES are each allowed to sponsor ONE panel or roundtable, which must be specified on the proposal form. Each affiliate-sponsored panel/roundtable will be screened in the usual manner by the Program Committee; we will not accept unscreened proposals.
Rule 2: Membership
IMPORTANT NEW RULE: All participants must have their individual profile, including their cv/bio information, in the ASEEES members site. Non-members can create a profile; one does not need to become a member in order to create a profile. If they have attended an ASEEES convention in the last seven years, they should already have a profile in our database. If they are not sure, they can contact email@example.com for assistance.
Ask your session participants to update or create their profile. This is essential. Do not wait until just before the submission deadline.
IMPORTANT NEW RULE: We have a new policy regarding MEMBERSHIP REQUIREMENTS starting with the 2013 convention. Please review the following information carefully:
WHO NEEDS TO BE A MEMBER:
By Dec. 17, 2012: Individual paper submitter in the U.S. or abroad must be a current member of ASEEES in order to submit an individual paper proposal.
By Jan. 15, 2013: Session organizer in the U.S. or abroad must be a current member of ASEEES in order to submit a proposal for the convention.
By March 31, 2013: All roundtable and panel participants who are in Slavic, East European and Eurasian studies in the U.S. or abroad must be ASEEES members upon receiving notification of proposal acceptance, which should be announced in late March.
MEMBERSHIP IS NOT REQUIRED for scholars outside the field of Slavic, East European and Eurasian studies. They must still register for the convention as non-members.
Organizers are responsible for letting panelists know about registration fees and membership rules. (Learn more about membership in ASEEES)
Rule 3: Preregistration
All participants on panels/roundtables, members and non-members, must preregister by the deadline and pay the registration fee. Failure to preregister will lead to the participant's name being removed from the Index of Participants in the convention program. See Convention Registration for more information.
Rule 4: Scheduling
If you agree to participate in the ASEEES Convention, you are agreeing to be scheduled during any of the planned sessions. We will honor specific scheduling requests only for religious reasons. (Read Mike Hickey's article in the May 2008 issue of NewsNet: "The Five Obstructions" or "Why somebody's panel has to meet on Sunday morning".)
