Call for Papers & Symposia

We welcome proposals for individual papers (30 min plus 15 min discussion) or symposia (3 speakers in a total 2-hour session). Graduate students are especially encouraged to submit proposals for either individual papers or symposia. All submissions will be subjected to a blind refereeing procedure. Proposals for papers should include the title and abstract (up to 500 words), but no personal information. Please attach a second file with your name, affiliation, contact details, and the title of the submitted paper. Symposia proposals should include the symposium title, a description of the symposium’s rationale (up to 500 words) and for each of the 3 speakers the title and abstract (up to 500 words), but no names. Please attach a second file with names, affiliations, contact details of the symposium organizers and speakers, and the title of the proposed symposium. If your paper/symposium addresses the overarching conference theme, please indicate this in the attached file where names etc. are specified. If you or (one or more of) the speakers in your symposium are graduate students, please indicate this, too.

Conference Language

The recommended conference language is English, but German contributions will also be considered.


Submissions are via EasyChair:

For symposium submissions: In case your joint abstract exceeds the EasyChair word count, please fill in the symposium’s rationale only and use the PDF upload to submit the abstracts of the single speakers.

For junior applicants: If you also want to participate in the career workshop please have a look at the panel discussion section at the programme.
