ECSA 2020 conference proposals: the call closed on 1 November

Call for Proposals

The Programme Committee for ECSA 2020 thanks all the persons that submitted a proposal for this event; details of the themes of the conference and of the different formats that sessions can take can be found here


Deadlines

The deadline for submitting a proposal was 1 November 2019. Proposals will be reviewed by the Programme Committee, and the communication regarding acceptance or refusal will be sent to the corresponding authors during January 2020.

Extended abstracts that have been accepted can be turned to full papers by end of May 2020.


Themes

Each proposal should focus on one of the following themes.

Session formats

While everyone was welcome to submit a paper to the conference (at which point the programme committee will organize thematic sessions of papers), we encouraged the development of sessions and proposals for them. Sessions could be proposed in a number of different formats (and we were open to other formats - we encouraged people to get in touch with the conference organizers if they wished to propose one).

Conference proceedings

The conference proceedings will be published as a special issue of the Journal of Science Communication (JCOM). Note: only proposals that submitted an extended abstract (1000 words) can be considered for this special issue. Extended abstracts that have been accepted can be turned to full papers by the end of May 2020.


Public event and conference marketplace

In addition to the call for proposals, ECSA 2020 offers the possibility to be part of a citizen science public event, while a conference marketplace will also be at your disposal. If you have ideas about how to present your activities during the public event in Trieste, or are interested in featuring your research directly at the conference venue, please contact us at ecsa2020@medialab.sissa.it for more details.
