Propose a Section for the 2016 ECPR General Conference

The 2016 ECPR General Conference will be held from 7 -10 September at Charles University, Prague; the oldest institution of higher learning in Central Europe.

The General Conference is the platform for lively discussion, exchange of ideas and the best thinking in the discipline, and is Europe’s biggest gathering of political scientists. Attracting scholars throughout the world, and at all stages of their career, the conference covers the full range of political science. The Academic Programme for the General Conference will consist of lectures, Roundtables and themed Sections and Panels on topical subjects. Each Panel will include 4 – 5 Papers. The Programme will be very broad with Sections covering all the main areas of political science, political theory and international relations. You can present and discuss your work or simply observe and become involved in other elements of the programme.

Submit your Section proposal

The Section proposal system is now OPEN, and will close at midnight GMT on 16 November 2015. Participants from full ECPR member institutions are invited to propose a Section. Don’t forget that your Co-Chair can come from a Full, Associate or non-member institution. All proposals to organise Sections must be submitted through the online form. The Sections will be selected by the Academic Convenors by early December. Further information about the role of a Section Chair can be found in our handy Guidelines.

Proposers will be notified of the outcome of their Section proposal in early December 2015. The Call for Panels and Papers will be circulated as soon as the Sections have been confirmed.
