What you need to know about Congress 2018 calls for papers

Wednesday, December 20, 2017

Ghassen Athmni, Communications Officer, Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences

With more than 5,000 research papers and lectures presented each year, the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences is a must-attend event for academics.

The winter season is the time of the year when most of the Congress programming is being developed. It is natural that calls for papers are among the most important deadlines of this period.

Researchers wishing to present at Congress 2018, which will take place from May 26 to June 1 in Regina, must submit their abstracts and proposals in respsonse to their associations’ calls for papers.

Given the size of Congress and the diverse audiences that attend the numerous conferences therein, researchers should gear their presentations in language accessible to as many attendees as possible.

Some conferences will be open to various audiences, including scholars of other disciplines, media outlets as well as the general public.

An incentive to participate

This year, the University of Regina is offering the Graduate Student Travel Awards. In order to allow graduate students and recent graduates to participate to Congress, the University of Regina is providing this assistance to offset the costs associated with attending.

Graduate students and recent doctoral graduates who meet the requirements will be eligible for a grant that will cover accommodations, food and bookstore costs to attend Congress 2018 and present their research.

Deadlines to come

Most call for papers deadlines are still ahead. The Federation has prepared a list of associations whose deadlines are still open for the months of December, January and February.

If you wish to submit an abstract for an association that has closed their call for papers, please contact the association directly.

Registration begins in mid-January on the Congress 2018 website and early bird pricing is in place until March 31.

* If the deadline for your association's call for papers is different from the one listed below, please send an email to congress@ideas-idess.ca.
