JALT PanSIG 2017 Call for Papers

2017 PanSIG Journal by July 31st, 2017

All presenters at PanSIG 2017 are invited to submit a paper based on their presentation for publication in the 2017 PanSIG Journal. In the same way that the presentations were vetted prior to the conference, the conference papers will also be subjected to peer review. Publication in the 2017 PanSIG Journal qualifies as a refereed publication. We would therefore like to encourage all presenters to submit a paper. The deadline for submissions is Monday, July 31st, 2017. Please see the PanSIG Journal site for details.

Submissions Closed

Proposals for PanSIG 2017 were to be submitted by January 15, 2017.

Notifications of Acceptance by March 2017

Notifications of final acceptance of proposals were sent via email between mid-February and early March, 2017.

Submitting a Proposal

Proposals may be submitted by registering here: www.conftool.net/pansig2017, then providing the information below. All speakers will need to register on the ConfTool website.

  • PRESENTER INFORMATION: Name, affiliation (academic institution or business), email address, telephone number for first speaker and other speakers.
  • TITLE: No more than 50 characters including spaces
  • FORMAT: Presentation (25 minutes, including 5 minutes of Q and A), Interactive poster session (45 Minutes including Q and A) or SIG Forum (90 Minutes).
  • SHORT SUMMARY: No more than 100 words or 150 characters. This will appear in the conference handbook and also be read as part of the selection process for the conference.

Number of Presentations Per Person

Each person may only submit one proposal as lead presenter and may only appear in one other proposal as a co-presenter or forum participant. If a presenter is listed in more than two proposals, excess submissions may be deleted. Since the whole proposal, not simply one presenter, will be eliminated, this will result in co-presenters being eliminated as well, even if they have not exceeded the limit for proposals.
