Here is the message, as a session convenor, from EASST leadership; please consider joining us on track D3 at EASST 2014 conference, Track Title: STS and “the state”.
NEW DEADLINE: FRIDAY, MAY 9TH, 2014
Here’s the message:
To all track convenors EASST2014 conference
After the close of call for abstracts last week we have reviewed the level of submissions. We feel that the publicising and timing of the EASST 2014 Conference deadline has led to difficulties for many members of our community in submitting abstracts by the agreed deadline. We are very appreciative of the efforts of those who did manage it. However we have decided to extend the deadline until Friday 9 May to ensure that all of those who wish to present at the conference have the opportunity to submit their abstract.
As a convenor we are asking you to help in encouraging more submissions for your track. We ask you to look at the current submissions … and identify any ‘missing’ individuals’ that you would have hoped to submit and then email them encouraging submission. The goal should be for each convenor to attract one extra abstract. This could deliver on average an extra 3 or 4 abstracts per track.
We hope it was also clear that any papers you wish to present yourselves should also have been submitted within the system.
For guidance about the overall programming, we propose 90 minutes sessions of 4 papers. 24 papers should be the normal maximum in any one track.
You may also wish to advertise this extended deadline through your networks.
