The submission deadline for the conference is September 15th, 2017. Paper and panel proposals should be submitted via the Association for Iranian Studies websit.

Your membership can be activated/updated at any time and “My Conference Submissions” portal for the 2018 conference should be available by mid-July (an announcement will be sent out when it is).
In addition to individual paper proposals, the AIS website will be able to accommodate three types of pre-organized group submissions: Panels, Roundtables and Special Sessions (e.g. plenary session, exhibit, performance, film screening and discussion).

Here is a preview of the different requirements for each type of pre-organized group submission.

In order to ensure blind peer-review, please DO NOT mention the names of panel participants in the panel abstract (otherwise, the panel may be subject to disqualification from the review process).

In addition to describing the professional and/or academic content and purpose of the Roundtable, the Roundtable abstract should address how audience participation in the discussion will be facilitated.
