SUBMISSIONS INSTRUCTIONS

There are more than one thousand sessions at the conference, and we want to make sure that each session has at least one discussant. Though there is a limit on the number of papers a person can present, there is no limit on serving as a chair or discussant. If you have questions, please contact us at conf@mpsanet.org. 

DISCUSSANTS on Junior Scholar Symposia are expected to read the papers in advance and provide detailed feedback on both the specific paper as well as discuss ways to extend the paper into a broader research agenda.

DISCUSSANTS on Panels are expected to read the papers in advance and provide feedback on each paper in the session.

PANELISTS on Roundtables do not prepare a paper in advance, but instead discuss the overall topic along with 2-5 other individuals.
