We invite session organisers to craft a 90-minute session that will be of great interest
and benefit to the members of the IPPA community and attendees of the conference.
We highly encourage panels that are broad in scope, multi-disciplinary and regionally-focused.
It should be engaging and gather diverse practitioners in sharing
Interested individuals are limited to chair one panel only. Please read the guidelines
and submit your panel proposal through the PANEL SUBMISSION PORTAL below.
Please use title case capitalization for your session title (e.g., The Prehistory of Thailand)
Details of the panel chair should include all relevant information, i.e., full name, affiliation and work/mailing address, email address. If applicable, please list down the complete name/s of your co-chair/s and respective details.
Please limit your abstract to 350 words (but no fewer than 150 words). State the main purpose of your session and what the attendees are going to expect.
We advise against overly broad sessions and instead encourage sessions that consider under-represented topics and diverse perspectives. Please use gender-neutral language, e.g., use they instead of s/he.
Each panel can have one or two session blocks. Each block is 90 minutes (1.5 hrs) or equivalent to 6 paper presentations. All panels will be restricted to a maximum of two blocks. Please indicate in the form whether you will be requiring one or two blocks.
If in the past you have chaired long sessions that have lasted more than two blocks, we suggest you consider breaking up ‘traditional’ panels thematically, and have the various panels chaired by different individuals. IPPA will make every effort to avoid session conflicts, though we cannot guarantee that we will be able to align all panels perfectly.
You may indicate an approximate size of your audience as a guide for the conference room allocation. A small room is ideal for delegates less than fifty, a medium-sized room will be for delegates around fifty to a hundred and a large room for over one hundred attendees.
The form may not be changed once it's submitted. Please email the Secretariat for any changes or revisions.
