Call for Panel, Roundtable and Paper Proposals (Now closed)

The Call for Panel, Roundtable and Paper Proposals is now closed.

The programme chairs of the 10th Pan-European Conference on International Relations invite paper, panel, and roundtable proposals for submission to any of the 51 sections on the 2016 programme.

The list of all 51 sections, including section abstracts and the contact information of the section chairs, can be found on the conference website. Please contact the section chairs for any question regarding their section.

The conference website also provides more general information on the conference.

There will be no open section: All paper, panel, and roundtable proposals are expected to fit into one of the 51 sections and to be submitted online to the appropriate section. A given proposal can be submitted to only one section at a time. However, it is possible to indicate two further sections to which a paper or panel/roundtable proposal might fit.

All sections welcome individual paper proposals and most welcome panel/roundtable proposals as well — please contact section chairs to enquire about this. Each 105-minute panel/roundtable should comprise five papers/presenters plus a discussant who may also act as panel/roundtable chair. 

Proposals (with abstracts of 200 words maximum) must be submitted, starting 10 November 2015, via our online submission system:

Please note that there will be a participation limit of three contributions per participant — whether as paper giver, roundtable speaker, or discussant/chair (any of these roles counts as one contribution).

The closing date for paper, panel, and roundtable proposals is midnight (CET) on Friday 8 January 2016

For any question regarding their section please contact the section chairs

For any questions on the conference, please contact the programme chairs, Mathias Albert and Katja Freistein at

We look forward to your proposals and to welcoming you in Izmir!
