SSHA accepts individual paper proposals, as well as proposals for full panels.
Past conference programs are available via the “Past Conferences” link on the left column, and can help provide a sense of the variety of panels and papers that have historically constituted the SSHA conference.
The SSHA conference submission site is currently unavailable. A new improved version is being built. The old site might temporarily be put on a different host until the new version is ready, but this may not be possible since the code is obsolete. When the new or temporary version becomes available, a link will be posted here.
Paper and Poster Proposals
If you have a single paper or poster you would like to present, you must submit a title and abstract. Once you submit your proposal, the Program Committee will try to place it in an appropriate session.
Sessions last two hours, of which at least thirty minutes should be reserved for discussion from the floor.
Paper sessions are most commonly proposed. A complete paper session typically has a chair, three or four papers, and one or two discussants. Presenters have 15 to 20 minutes apiece; reading full papers is not feasible.
You may also propose a roundtable discussion, which has a chair and three to five discussants, or a book session, which involves a chair, book author, and three discussants.
Panel proposals for paper sessions, roundtable discussions or book sessions should include the name and affiliation of each proposed panel member, in addition the title of their respective contributions to the panel.
Individuals who wish to propose a panel might consider contacting the network representatives in the substantive area to discuss potential panel ideas.
Once you submit your proposal, a network representative will review it, and pass his or her recommendation along to the Program Committee.
