Responsibilities of topic proponents
Dear EURAM members and friends,
Your activities are the bedrock of the Conference. We look forward to receiving your proposals for new topics. You will facilitate the development of research and of papers that matter.
If you chair a standing track, please also refer to the topic chairs’ responsibilities that signal the start of our common mission and complete the topic proposal template so that we can present your track on the Website.
Propose a topic to be considered for the conference programme by clicking on topic and by filling out the topic proposal form which is available 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.
This proposal should include
(1) Part 1 Topic:
- Indicate Title (the name of the proposed Topic. – 100 Characters without spaces max.);
- Indicate to which SIG you are submitting your Topic proposal (You can either submit a proposal to one specific SIG or to the General Conference Track);
- Tick the Declaration of Commitment (by sending this proposal to the EURAM 2023 Conference Programme Committee, the proponent’s team commits to respect the deadlines and conditions in performing the tasks required by the Conference Programme Committee.)
- Describe previous experience of the proponents’ team with this topic in major scholarly conferences –max. 200 words;
- Describe the objectives of the Topic, the characteristics and methodology of the proposed sessions, and justify its relevance. Short description max. 100 words as well as long description of max. 400 words;
- Provide a short bio of each proponent –max. 100 words
- Indicate at least 3 references related to the Topic being proposed – max. 100 words;
- Indicate at least 3 keywords;
- Indicate the main networks: associations, journals, research centres, research teams, social media, etc. you intend to mobilise to promote the Conference and the Topic you are proposing;
- Indicate the journals or book publishers with which you could negotiate a special issue, or a book focused on your topic’s best papers;
- Indicate the Sustainable Development Goals your topic addresses (UN SDGs)
(2) Part 2 – Proponents
- List the proponents (we recommend teams of two or three scholars from different countries); You can add an existing contact profile as co-proponent or add a new contact profile as co-proponent (in case the proponent is not registered in the system).
Note: The Topic Proposal Form can be saved and completed later.
If your proposal is accepted, actively promote your topic through your own networks on behalf of the EURAM conference, highlighting the opportunity to submit research papers for the topic you are proposing. You are expected to issue your own call for papers that must be coordinated in terms of styling and content with the SIG to which your topic is attached.
– COMMITMENT TO ASSUME FURTHER RESPONSIBILITIES
When your proposed topic achieves a significant number of submissions (at least 20 papers), topic proponents commit to accept the responsibility of becoming Track Chairs and to responsibly develop such a role. Thank you for taking the time to communicate with the SIG chair and the Conference Programme Committee when your topic is selected and for respecting all the deadlines. Your availability and your capacity to manage those first steps are the conditions for transforming your topic into a conference track.
Concerning attendance at the conference, all track chairs, panellists or moderators in a symposium will need to register and pay the conference and membership fees which will be in the range of those offered in 2022 (see here).
