We are now taking submissions for the October 2020 REP online conference co-hosted with MAD-AAG.

Paper & Panel Submissions

  • After you have registered, you may submit your poster, organized panel, or organized paper session until October 1st, 2020 (though we strongly encourage earlier)
  • Each registrant may organize multiple sessions and/or panels, but may present only one paper.
  • A panel consists of scholars examining a specific topic that is followed by questions from audience members.
  • A paper session is comprised of a thematically coherent group of individual paper presentations followed by questions from audience members.
  • All papers not submitted as part of an organized paper session will be placed into coherent sessions by the Program Committee based on keywords and abstract content.
  • Paper presenters must submit abstracts (paper session organizers need not present but must submit an abstract summarizing the session).
  • Panel organizers must also submit abstracts, but individual panelists need not submit abstracts.
  • Presenters of papers in organized sessions must indicate the session organizer and its title on the abstract submission form (accessible until deadline).
  • Abstracts should be approximately 150 words in length.
  • All abstracts for papers in organized sessions must be submitted separately.
  • Paper presentations and panels do not have to reflect the annual conference theme
  • Panel organizers must register the title and abstract, including names of participant panelists.
  • Panelists need not submit separate abstracts, but must be registered for the event.
  • Submission of an abstract indicates agreement for it to be published in the conference program and book of abstracts.
