[CFP] Call for panel & workshop proposals – 6th IATIS International Conference 2018

Deadline for submission : 1 March 2017

Modality of submission : by email to


Notification of acceptance : 20 March, 2017



Panels are groups of papers organized around a particular theme. Panel themes should ideally be related to the overall conference theme. However, in some cases, panels may be built around their own independent themes. This applies in particular to panels that have become established through previous IATIS conferences.

Proposals for panels should take the form of one or two paragraphs (approx. 300 words) establishing the rationale for a panel, a succinct statement of the aims of the panel, and a list of specific issues that intending contributors might address.

The Call for Papers for approved panels and the general conference will be issued after panel proposals acceptance (see here the key dates section). Individual submissions of abstracts for approved panels will be made through the EasyChair conference management system (a specific paper submission link will be issued in due time), and will be assessed by the panel convenors. A list of panels from the 5th IATIS conference may be found by clicking here for reference.


Workshops take place directly preceding the main conference, and are designed to be training sessions on a topic of interest to conference attendees. They are expected to be of relevance to teaching and professional development, with a special emphasis on the learning or development of new skills. Workshops are normally scheduled to last 4 hours (breaks included).

Proposals for workshops should be around 300 words, and should provide a rationale for the workshop and a succinct statement of its aims, as well as a list of specific issues and learning activities that may be covered.
