In the submission system, you will be asked to select your preference of either online or offline conference participation (or both). The final format of the conference depends on the number of online/offline submissions; therefore we will announce the conference fee for different types of presenters as well as the exact timing for panels and other events presenters after the submission is closed. For panels organizers, please also select either the offline or on-line option (or both) for entire panels. Thank you for your understanding!
The MSA especially encourages panel submissions but also welcomes individual submissions. The panel should consist of 4-5 presenters, a chair, and optionally a discussant. You may appear as a presenter only once but can act as chair or discussant in more than one panel. The organizers also welcome proposals of:
- roundtables of 5-7 participants with shorter statements and discussion;
- turbo sessions of 7-10 participants networking on a given research topic or common theme;
- special events including films, performances, art, exhibitions, etc. Please specify all technical conditions necessary for hosting such an event.
The abstracts of individual papers and descriptions of panels/roundtables/turbo sessions/special events should not exceed 500 words. Abstracts of individual papers within a panel should not exceed 350 words including title and names of the authors. Biographical notes should not exceed 150 words.
MSA Working/Regional groups have one panel in the program guaranteed. Group chairs should discuss a larger number of panels with the conference organizers. In both cases, submissions need to be made through the online system and marked as Working/Regional Group events.

If you wish to submit a new abstract, it will be subject to review.
