Current and future members of the Society for the Advancement of Scandinavian Study are invited to propose papers or presentations for SASS 2018, the 108th annual meeting of the Society, to be held in Los Angeles, California, on the UCLA campus, May 3-5, 2018.
Papers: Normal papers are considered to be 20 minutes in presentation length. On the paper proposal site, accessible to all registered members of SASS, you will be prompted for:
- Abstract (150 words) to be published in the abstract book as entered.
- Keywords from a drop-down menu
All presenters are reminded to have proper cables to connect their computer to standard VGA, mini-stereo, and HDMI ports.
Graduate students are welcome to submit proposals and should ask for an academic advisor to write a brief letter of support for their project. There is an area on the paper proposal form to indicate the name and email of the advisor.
Panels: Panels are an event organized a coherent theme. The initial proposal is made by a panel chair who proposes the topic and the participants, along with their preliminary titles. Once the panel is approved (approximately 2-3 days), the panel participants must individually register their paper, using the panel/stream pull-down menu to select their panel. Panel chairs will receive notification when their panel participants have submitted their proposals.
Roundtables and workshops follow the same process as panels, with some modification:
- For roundtables, presenters do not need to upload an abstract. Their title is the title of their contribution to the roundtable.
- For workshops, presenters upload a title of their particular component of the workshop, and a description of what they will be going over as their abstract.
PLEASE VISIT THE CALL FOR PANELS & STREAMS TO PROPOSE A PANEL, ROUNDTABLE OR WORKSHOP
Streams: Streams are an organized series of panels that cover a broad theme. Papers proposed for approved streams need to be assigned to the stream by using the pull-down menu. Failure to do so will place the paper in the general pool. By assigning your paper to an approved stream, the stream director will be in charge of panel creation and scheduling.
