ICPP4 - MONTREAL 2019
Following the success of the first three International Conferences on Public Policy in Grenoble (2013), Milan (2015) and Singapore (2017), we are pleased to invite you to submit a panel proposal for the fourth International Conference on Public Policy, the leading international forum for public policy scholarship organised by the International Public Policy Association. The Conference will take place at Concordia University, Montreal, Canada from 26th-28th June 2019.
The 2017 conference in Singapore (ICPP3) was a great success attended by over 1,300 participants from more than 73 countries and featured more than 265 sessions and over 1,680 paper presentations. A similar number of panels and participants is expected in Montreal.
ICPP4 is organised in two phases.
i. Call for Open Panels (4th September 2018 - 26th October 2018)
ii. Call for Papers (15 November 2018 - 30th January 2019)
In the first phase, scholars will be expected to propose a panel on a specific topic. All selected panels will be announced on our website before launching the second phase, the call for papers.
A panel proposal should define a research question, allowing policy researchers on the same issues to present and to discuss their works with participants. The panel proposals can be on any particular topic (theoretical, methodological, or empirical approaches are all welcome) and must contain a “Call for Papers” which will be published if the panel is selected.
All panel proposals will be reviewed by the International Scientific Committee of ICPP, and the "Call for Papers" of the selected panels will be published online. The panel chairs will receive paper proposals and select from them papers of a high quality which corresponds to their panel (between 4 and 15 papers) and will organise between 1 and 3 sessions of 2 hours during ICPP4.
To foster robust, inclusive and wide-ranging discussions, IPPA is seeking panels and sessions covering a wide array of topics, disciplines, theories and methodologies from both emerging and established scholars.
All the panels are open (please send panel proposal without paper proposal) and the panel chairs will be in charge of the paper selection.
The panel submission is an online process. To propose a panel, you must:
1. Create an account on our Website as well as all the other co-chairs of the panel: HERE
2. Complete the online form with the following information (in English) :
a. Title of the panel.
b. Choice of topic in a list
c. Email address of any other Panel Chair(s)
d. A description of the objectives of the panel and its scientific relevance from 300 to 500 words max. The description must explain in which context this topic takes place, contain a brief state of the art, present the research question to interrogate and the different hypotheses the panel can explore
e. A text for a “Call for Papers” of around 500 words that explains the research question the paper must take into account, the hypotheses the paper must explore and the kind of papers the panel chairs expects.
Each panel must identify the main topic corresponding to its Research Question. The goal of a topic is essentially to help authors finding more easily a panel proposal in the list of all panels selected.
