ARCE encourages panel submissions. Please review the panel submission guidelines [here]
Abstracts should provide a brief overview of the topic, clearly state the research goals and note the impact of the work in the relevant area of study. (Results should be relayed during the presentation itself - as appropriate - not necessarily in the abstract.)

Neither reviewers nor submitters will be informed of one another’s identities.
