Each symposium is organized around a common theme. A 150-250 word abstract of the symposium will be peer reviewed for acceptance to the conference.

Panel Proposal: (75 minutes)
The Conference Committee welcomes proposals for a panel discussion.

Typically, each panelist is given 10-15 minutes to discuss the topic, present theoretical ideas, and/or point to relevant research. (Note: A chair who introduces the panel and frames the issues and questions being addressed should be identified. In addition to the chair, we encourage (but do not require) organizers of panels to include a discussant who responds to the comments of the panelists). A 150-250 word abstract of the panel discussion will be peer reviewed for acceptance to the conference.
