Information about abstract submission

Proposals for individual presentations, thematic sessions or roundtable discussions can be submitted here by 1 February 2022 at the latest. Please note that as a rule, attendees should not be an active participant (presenter, chair, discussant etc.) in more than two (2) proposals.

 

Session types and length etc.

 

• You can submit three kinds of proposals: individual presentations, thematic sessions and roundtable discussions (panels). For individual papers, the organising committee will be responsible for creating loosely thematic sessions with three or four presentations in each.

 

• In general, sessions at the conference will be 90 minutes or, in a few cases depending on demand, 120 minutes long. Sessions put together by the organising committee from individual proposals will allow 25-30 minutes including questions for each paper. If you plan to propose a thematic session you should base it on the same rule of thumb, which means that proposals with three papers will normally be given 90 minutes and those with four or five papers will be allowed 120 minutes.

 

• If your thematic session consists of more than five presentations, it will be sheduled as a double session – either 90+90 or 90+120 minutes, in the latter case allowing for a maximum of eight papers. If you plan a proposals with more than eight presentations, please contact the organisers on nhm2022@gu.se before you submit your proposal.

 

• Roundtables will normally be 90 minutes long. There is no specific limit to the number of participants, but if the panel is large or for some other reason you wish to have 120 minutes for the session please contact the organisers on nhm2022@gu.se before you submit your proposal.
