Call for Session Proposals

We suggest a number of thematic fields as a guideline to address contemporary challenges of the interplay between science, technology and society. We encourage session proposers to address one of the thematic fields.


Please follow the guidelines for session proposers as outlined below.


Guidelines for session proposers

Please observe the following guidelines when submitting a session proposal:

  1. Please create a ConfTool account and use then the online form to submit your proposal no later than November 9, 2021.
                   ConfTool: Instructions for Submitting Authors

  2. Session proposals must not exceed 500 words.
  3. Your session proposal needs to be written in a way suitable for publication on our website as a call for abstracts. Address your desired contributors directly and be clear about the type of contributions you seek to be presented in your session.
  4. Do not submit abstracts of your own paper. Even if you intend to present a paper of your own – you are certainly welcome to do so – submit your paper over the course of the call for abstracts after the session proposals have been assessed, accepted and published on our website. You may send additional  information such as CV, list of publications and abstracts of intended paper presentations in the appendix to your session proposal.
  5. The format of your proposed session does not need to be limited to academic papers and presentations. We encourage you to suggest interactive and innovative session formats, such as group discussions, world cafes, round tables, etc. Please specify your idea in case you plan an alternative setting by briefly describing it in your session proposal.
  6. After acceptance, session proposers are expected to assist with reviewing full papers submitted to their own session
