The conference will feature paper and poster sessions and open spaces for more spontaneous workshops with no formal papers or panelists ("unconferencing" - see below). Each paper will be allotted 20 minutes, including time for questions. All papers will be presented on Friday afternoon or Saturday, October 24-25, 2014.
All submissions must be made through the conference abstract submission form (closed). No email or other submissions will be accepted. The deadline for all submissions is September 26, 2014.
Panel and Abstract Submissions
There are two methods of submitting papers. Abstracts can be submitted by a panel organizer or as an individual participant.
Participants may organize a themed session and submit 3 (minimum) or 4 (maximum) abstracts with the title of the panel. Session organizers can submit the individual abstracts and indicate the session they are a part of, and submit a session placeholder also through the abstract submission tool.
Participants may also submit individual abstracts which the conference organizers will place into sessions. The submission will include:
- - the title of the paper
- - the name(s) and affiliation(s) of the author(s)
- - a 250 word (maximum) abstract
- - and up to four keywords.

With these sessions, we would like to provide an open space for less formal workshops and open roundtables and discussions. This format is often used for discussions of organizign and activism, but could potentially alos be useful for exchanges on methods, fieldwork, graduate student experiences and other topics. Participants that intend to organize an "unconference" sessions are asked to publicize their planned session beforehand and think about facilitiating the discussion. We ask "unconference" session organizers to register a topic using the form (closed), and we will make every effort to provide a room for the session.
