PLEASE NOTE:  There are some changes and new things for our conference this year.  There is an overall limit of 5 submissions per presenter this year.  We also are instituting an “extended session,” so read the calls for the divisions or interest groups to whom you are submitting carefully and make sure to follow all the guidelines.  There are tutorials available on the website to assist you with the submission system.

Tips for Online Submission:

Have your document ready to upload!

You MUST upload a paper, poster for the interactive paper session, or extended abstract in order to complete the submission process.

Before submitting your document, remember to remove all author identification from the text, cover page, and the file properties. (In the “File” menu select “Properties,” delete any identifying information, click “OK,” and save the document.)

 The Session Organizer submits the panel proposal, and enters all of the panel information including the abstract rationale, and listing of all panel participants. When entering a panel participant, please SEARCH THE DATABASE for the participants. ENTER ONLY 2 OR 3 LETTERS OF THE FIRST AND LAST NAMES WHEN SEARCHING. This strategy will minimize the possibility of missing a record because of a ‘special’ character in the first or last names. Creating a second record for a person already in the data base will cause problems in the future. In the Panel Description field enter the text of your panel proposal including rationale, presentation authors and titles, and abstracts or any other information mentioned in the Call for Papers. You can do this by copying and pasting the text of the panel proposal from your word document.

 Most ICA divisions and interest groups are accepting paper submissions for the Plenary Scholar-to-Scholar Interactive Paper (Poster) Session.

If your paper submission would benefit from a highly visual, interactive presentation format, please consider submitting a paper for the poster session.

  ICA Member Associations are eligible for at least one panel program at the conference. The highest ranking elected officer or designated program planner of each Member Association is invited to submit a panel proposal through the online submission system by the 01 November submission deadline. Follow the instructions for submitting a panel session and submit under Sponsored Sessions.

Help is available:

If you need help with online submission, contact the appropriate ICA division or interest group program planner. Contact information is listed in the Call for Papers. All divisions and interest groups are accepting only electronic submissions.
