IASS Working Groups and individuals more broadly are invited to submit proposals to organize paper presentation sessions around specific themes.  Paper sessions should ideally have at least six papers, and those proposing sessions are asked to anticipate and help to solicit papers from relevant authors.  

Proposals for sessions are due by midnight Eastern Time on November 15, 2017 by submitting this form.

Workshop and Master Class Proposals

due November 15, 2017

The IASS 2018 organizers are happy to consider proposals for workshops or master classes to be held in the days ahead of the 2018 IASS Symposium in Boston. Following the convention used in the 2017 IASS Symposium, master classes address specialists and aim at the exchange of knowledge on an advanced level, while in workshops, experience will be gained together and exchanged.

Due to limitations on facilities and budget, the 2018 IASS organizers cannot guarantee that all master class and workshop proposals can be accepted, but will carefully review each proposal and reach out to discuss specifics with the proposers as necessary.

Proposals for sessions are due by midnight Eastern Time on November 15, 2017 by submitting this form.
