Useful Information for Panel Organizers
As panel organizer we hope you will actively engage in soliciting papers for your panel.
IHSA aims for conferences that bring together academics as well as reflective practitioners. Your panel can be leaning to one of these audiences, or aim for a mixed participation. Once a paper abstract is submitted to your panel, the submitter will get an automated reply to acknowledge the receipt and you will be notified automatically.
It is up to you to accept or reject paper proposals.
Criteria you may apply are:
You can also make suggestions to paper providers on improving their proposal to meet these criteria. Slots for panels during the conference are 90 minutes. This serves for 3-5 papers. In case there are more papers in your panel, you can have more slots. It may be advisable to appoint a chair to the panel and you may choose to have a discussant to the panel.
IHSA aims for a broad geographical participation and especially encourages the participation from countries where humanitarian crises occur frequently. We unfortunately do not have an elaborate budget for sponsored participation. We will highly appreciate any efforts you can make to find sponsorship for participants to your panel if so required.
You can add panel organisers to your panel. A co-organiser will be visible on the panel page, receives an automatic email after a paper was submitted and can review papers. You can add a co-organiser following these steps:
– Log in on the conference website
– Go to your ‘account‘ page (top of the page)
– In the left side menu click on ‘your panels‘
– Click on the ‘invite’ link under your submitted panel
– Co-organisers need to create an account on the conference panel in order to accept the invite
