Panel Calls for Papers

2019 ASLE Conference Panel Calls for Proposals

All accepted panels seeking participants at the 2019 ASLE Biennial Conference are posted below in alphabetical order, with a direct link to their individual descriptions and submission forms in Submittable. You can also view all panels and descriptions by visiting the ASLE Submittable site, or in this PDF document: 

ASLE 2019 Accepted Panels Seeking Participants (PDF)

All paper submissions to these panels must be made via Submittable. If you do not yet have a login account with them, you will need to create one to submit. 

PLEASE NOTE: Only one paper proposal submission is allowed per person.  Do not submit to more than one panel.  The reason for this is that if everyone applied to multiple panels and then got accepted to all or some of them, that would have a cascading effect on the panel organizers, because participants can only present on one panel. Papers organizers thought would be included in their panel would get pulled if an applicant decided to present somewhere else on the program, and that could create confusion or even cause the panel to collapse because there would not be enough presenters.
