  1. Anyone can submit a paper proposal. However, you must be signed up for a free IPSA website account to be able to submit a proposal. You do not need to be a member of IPSA to submit a proposal, however in order to participate and register for the World Congress you must become an IPSA member.
  2. Only the main author should submit the paper proposal. Co-authors (if any) must be added once the abstract is submitted.
    ALL panelists must be signed up for a free IPSA website account in order to have their names included as a co-author in the paper proposal or another role on the program.

    No individual may make more than one appearance in the program in each of the following roles:

    • Chair or co-chair of a panel
    • Discussant on a panel
    • “Papergiver”: may appear twice – once as a main author and once as a co-author.  Should more than one of your proposals be accepted, only 1 will be accepted in the final program and any others rejected.  You will have the choice to choose the proposal you wish to keep.
  4. If you are accepted:
    • You will be asked to upload the complete paper by 1 July 2020 in your account.
    • Be prepared to present your paper orally, in no more than 15 minutes at the Congress.
