Responsibilities of symposia proponents
Dear EURAM members and friends,
By proposing a symposium, you contribute to enhancing the interest of and in the Conference. By promoting and organising a stimulating and participative symposium after your proposal is selected, you will facilitate the development of research and education that matter.
Propose a symposium to be considered for the conference programme by clicking on symposium and by filling out the symposium proposal form which will is available on here.
Prior to submitting your proposal, please ensure that you run a spell check on all the texts you are submitting. In case of acceptance, parts of your proposal will be published on the EURAM website and proceedings.
Please use the fields checklist to prepare your proposal before online submission.
The information that you provide on the form should include:
(1) Part one Symposium:
- Indicate Title (the name of the proposed Symposium. – 100 Characters without spaces max.)
- Indicate to what SIG(s) you are submitting your Symposium proposal (1st Choice and – optional – 2nd choice). You can either submit a proposal to one or two SIGs or to the General Conference Track and one SIG;

- Provide a short bio of each proponent –max. 100 words;
- Describe previous experience of the proponents’ team with this topic in major scholarly conferences –max. 200 words.

Note: the Symposium Proposal Form can be saved and completed later.
If your proposal is selected you are expected to actively promote the symposium through your own networks on behalf of the EURAM conference, highlighting the opportunity to attend and participate in the symposium you are proposing.
– ON-SITE RESPONSIBILITIES
If your proposal is selected you are expected to monitor your symposium session to be sure that everything is working as planned (presence of panellists, participants; existence and functioning of the required resources, etc.) and communicate in a timely manner any incident to the Conference Programme Committee.
Thank you for taking the time to communicate with the relevant SIG chairs and the Conference Programme Committee and for respecting all the deadlines to enhance the quality of the conference for all participants.
