Fifth European Conference on African Studies - call for papers

November 26, 2012

The fifth European Conference on African Studies (ECAS 2013) will take place in Lisbon, Portugal, on June 26 to 28, 2013. It will be organized by the Centro de Estudos Africanos - Instituto Universitário de Lisboa (Center of African Studies of the University Institute of Lisbon) on behalf of AEGIS, the Africa-Europe Group for Interdisciplinary Studies. Its general theme will be ‘African Dynamics in a Multipolar World’.

Call for papers

The call for papers is now open and will close on 16th January 2013.

Please browse the list of accepted panels and make your proposal to an appropriate panel. On the panel page, beneath the long abstract you will find a link stating 'Propose a paper'. Click that to access the online form.

All proposals must be made via the bespoke on-line facility that ECAS 2013 is using to handle all proposals. Proposals should not be sent by email. Convenors wishing to present in their own panel should also use the online form to enter their proposal.

Proposals should consist of a paper title, a (very) short abstract of less than 300 characters, and an abstract of 250 words. The proposal may also state the audio-visual requirements you have for your presentation.

On submission of the proposal, you should be taken to a screen stating that your submission was completed successfully. If not then you need to try again. On completion the convenors will be sent an automated email alerting them to your proposal. You will also be sent such an email. If you do not receive this email, please first check the login environment (click login above) to see if your proposal is there. If it is, it simply means your confirmation email got spammed/lost; and if it is not, it means you need to re-submit, as the process went wrong somewhere!

Proposals will be marked as pending until the Call for Papers closes, and convenors are asked to make decisions. They will then be marked as accepted or rejected; and the panel convenors will inform you of their decisions.
