Organizer-refereed Panels are approved by the Program Committee for presentation at a future Annual Meeting at least 18 months before that meeting takes place. After approval, the Program Committee delegates all discretionary responsibility for selection of abstracts and discussants to the panel organizer(s). In order to ensure anonymity, however, all abstracts are submitted to the Executive Director's office and are then forwarded anonymously to the panel organizer(s).
Please see individual Calls for Papers below for submission instructions and deadlines. Members wishing to present a paper in an Organizer-Refereed Panel must have paid SCS membership dues for 2016.
If a member’s paper is accepted for an Organizer-Refereed Panel, that member may not submit another abstract for consideration by the Program Committee for a regular paper session.
All abstracts for Organizer-Refereed Panels should be submitted to the SCS Office (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than 11:59 p.m., Eastern Time, on Friday February 24, 2017.
