Language Policy.  As a rule, papers and panels at the CESS Annual Conference are in English; this is important to promote cross-regional discussions that cross the boundaries of any language in the region.  The Conference Committee will consider proposals for panels (no individual paper proposals, however) that are conducted either in another language besides English, or in a combination of English and another language.  A person proposing such a panel would need to make a good case for why the panel is best conducted in a language other than English, including addressing how that language would be the best medium for engaging the audience at a CESS conference that would be interested in this panel.  For such panels, we ask that you submit the entire proposal in English, supplemented by the title of the paper and name of the presenter in the proposed language of presentation (proposals that do not provide all of the information in English will not be considered).

The deadline for submission of BOTH panel and paper proposals is 4 March 2016.
