The space for the abstract should be used to list the names of the panel participants, the titles of their papers and the discussant. The chair of the panel should have previously contacted the participants before including them in the proposal. All panellists also need to submit their abstract separately. At the end of their abstract they must indicate that the paper is part of a panel, mentioning title and chair.

Abstract proposals and papers must be sent in English. All presentations will also be in English.

Appearances as panel chair or as panel discussant or participation in roundtables do not count against the participation limit.
