THE CALL FOR PAPERS is open from 15th November 2018 to 30th January 2019

ICPP4 is organized in two phases: a Call for Panels is followed by a Call for Papers (15th November 2018 - 30th January 2019). In the first step, the Scientific Committee had selected 185 panels. We are now in the second step, the call for papers. 


To submit a proposal, authors must first choose a panel from the list of panels that you can find HERE. Each panel description contains a presentation of its general objectives, its research questions and its call for papers which describes what kind of papers the panel chairs look for. After identifying the relevant panel, the authors need to prepare an abstract (300 to 500 words) which matches the panel chairs' expectations. When the abstract is ready, the authors must go through the following steps. 




To submit a paper proposal:

  • Each author must have an account or create an account on the website
  • If the paper has co-author(s) then each co-author must create an individual account
  • Each author can propose a maximum of 2 paper proposals


The same paper proposal cannot be sent to two different panels, otherwise one of the proposals will be deleted before the selection process. Please send your paper proposal to the most relevant Panel. 


How to submit the paper proposal?

1)   Log-in to your account (or create one if you haven’t done so previously)


2)   Go to one of these submission pages (2 ways possible):


  • If you already know the panel in which you want to submit your paper proposal, go to the Conference page and click on the “submit a paper” button 
  • Alternatively, you can also browse the list of panels and then click on the “submit a paper for this panel” button


3)   Fill the form on the website with the following information:


  • Enter the email ID(s) of the co-author(s). If they were not registered on the website before, you won’t be able to add them on the proposal
  • Confirm your panel choice from the list of panels
  • Type in the title of your paper
  • Add an abstract of your paper (300 to 500 words) explaining your paper project, your research question, your methodology and how it fits with the panel's research questions. 


Please note that the paper proposals should not be sent via email to the panel chairs or IPPA team
