Submissions

Submissions closed June 3rd, 2019. Please email Ainslie Bishop, one of our Professional Conference Organisers, if you missed the deadline.

Abstracts are required for all presentations (i.e. even if you are submitting a paper). TASA only accepts written conference papers from Honours, Graduate and Postgraduate students. These papers will be reviewed and if accepted included in the conference proceedings (please note, it is not compulsory for Honours, Graduate and Postgraduate students to submit a paper. This cohort can submit an abstract only and will be allocated the same presentation length as peers who have submitted a paper. The difference being, those students who have submitted a paper will have it reviewed and published in the proceedings). Conference papers for refereeing will be accepted from non-students if a delegate cannot access institutional support or funding to attend otherwise. If this applies to you, please contact Sally in the TASA Admin for a ‘full paper submission’ code before submitting your paper.

Regarding submission limits, you can submit 1 sole presentation and 1 co-presentation/panel contribution maximum, or 2 co-presentations/panel contributions maximum. If you are interested in a panel within your Thematic Group (TG) or across TGs then please seek guidance from the relevant TG convener/s on how to set the submissions up in terms of themes and abstracts. All abstracts (and papers) will be submitted for a review process with notification of results sent via email by Friday July 26th, 2019. Accepted abstracts and papers will be allocated 15 minutes presentation time and 5 minutes for questions.

Please note, delegates, who are not Honours or above, are invited to submit poster presentations. The conference is open to all sociology students and others who wish to submit abstracts and papers outside the conference themes.
