Paper Proposals

A paper proposal comprises a one-page abstract and a completed Participant Information Form, which is available on the Congress website beginning in July (deadline: September 15).

Image of an alarm clock The Call for Papers for the following year's Congress, which lists the Sponsored and Special Sessions approved by the Congress Committee, is available on the Congress website in July. You may send a paper proposal to the contact person listed in the Call for Papers for a Sponsored or Special Session OR submit a proposal directly to the Congress Committee at the Medieval Institute to be considered for inclusion in a General Session. Sponsored and Special Sessions may be closing or closed at any point along the timeline to the September 15 deadline for paper proposals. The person proposing a paper who waits until the last minute may be very disappointed. Organizers of Sponsored and Special Sessions are obliged to forward proposals that are not selected to the Congress Committee, so that the papers can be considered for General Sessions.
