Sessions at ISA World Congress 2018 Toronto
To: National, Regional, Linguistic and Thematic Associations, collective members of the ISA
Greetings! As you may already know, the XIX ISA World Congress of Sociology will take place in Toronto, Canada, on July 15-21, 2018.
Congress main theme is: Power, Violence and Justice: Reflections, Responses and Responsibilities http://www.isa-sociology.org/en/conferences/world-congress/toronto-2018/
Although it seems far away yet, I would like to remind you about the rules for applying for Congress sessions to be organized by National, Regional, Linguistic and Thematic Sociological Associations.
These sessions will be held at 15:30-17:30 during 5 days, Monday through Friday, July 16-20, 2018 and they are intended as a forum at which National, Regional, Linguistic and Thematic Sociological Associations, collective members of ISA in good standing, can present:
• The research results dealing with particularly important problems and challenges facing their regions/fields;
• Particularly influential, specific traditions in sociology
The format of the sessions may vary and include: presentation of papers, panel discussions, round table debates, poster or slide presentations, and book exhibits, etc.
No more than two submissions should be made by the same Association.
There is a limited number of slots for Associations’ sessions in the Congress programme, and therefore applications will be evaluated on their strength on the competitive basis.
The deadline for submitting proposals is January 15, 2017.
Proposals must be submitted to the ISA Secretariat email@example.com with copies to Vice-President for National Associations, Sari Hanafi firstname.lastname@example.org and Vice-President for Research, Markus Schulz email@example.com
The selection of a maximum of 10 proposals will be done by a sub-committee composed of the four members of the Executive Committee who sit on the Research Coordinating Committee as well as on the National Associations Liaison Committee, plus the Vice President, National Associations and the Vice President, Research.
I want to take this opportunity to say how much I am looking forward to working together with you towards a successful Nineteenth ISA World Congress of Sociology
