All submissions must be made via this website. Submission via email will not be accepted.
You are encouraged to make your submission as early as possible. In this way, ESC staff will be better able to assist you in case of problems.
You will need to create a profile first. Once this is done, you will be asked to indicate the type of submission you wish to make. The ESC accepts five types of submissions:
- Individual paper
Submission for individual paper presentations must include a title, a paper abstract as well as author name, affiliation and email. Individual papers with more than one author may also be submitted. Please mind: individual paper presentations are primarily intended for research that is close to being completed or where significant work has already been done. Upcoming research projects are better suited for a poster presentation. Individual papers will be arranged into panels by working groups and the conference organizers.
- Pre-arranged panels
Submissions for pre-arranged panels must include a panel title and a panel abstract, as well as titles, abstracts, author information (name, affiliation and email) for each individual paper within a panel. Pre-arranged panels are intended for individual presentations that are closely linked thematically and complement each other. Pre-arranged panels shall have four or five papers. Panels with less or more papers cannot be submitted.
- Poster presentations
Submissions for poster presentation must include title, abstract, as well as author name, affiliation and email. Posters are primarily intended for junior scholars, as well as research project that have not been started yet, or where little progress have been made.
Submission for roundtable sessions must include roundtable title and abstract, as well as, at a minimum, participant information (name, affiliation, email). Roundtables are intended to be more informal than pre-arranged panels, as well as more flexible in their setup and content. The intended format shall be indicated in the roundtable abstract. Roundtables might involve the discussion of a topic, a series of topics; alternatively, roundtables might also include the presentation of one or more fully fledged papers, with the other participants acting as discussants (in the latter case, the submission shall also include paper title, paper abstract and author information).
- Author meets critics
Submission for author meets critics sessions shall include author(s), book title(s), as well as the name, affiliation and email of up to four critics. Author meets critics sessions are intended for a discussion and critiquing of a single book or up to three thematically closely related books. Please note that the books must appear in print before the submission deadline (15 April) to give critics and conference participants enough time to familiarize themselves with their content. Author meets critics sessions are intended for published books only. Book manuscripts and published journal articles can be the subject of a roundtable discussion.
While the ESC accepts individual papers with multiple authors, due to temporal and spatial constrains, only one first authorship of individual paper per person is allowed.
This means that a participant may submit only one single-authored paper or one co-authored paper as a first author. This applies irrespective of the fact whether the paper has been submitted individually or as a part of a pre-arranged panel. Conference organizers might grant exceptions from this rule in special circumstances (for example, for PIs of large-scale research projects) – in such cases, please contact the organizers before submission.
There is no such limitation for non-first author co-authorships, roundtable participation or being an author or critic in an author meets critics session.
You will receive an automatic confirmation email after you submit. If you do not, please contact us at email@example.com.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed. Submissions will be reviewed on a rolling basis with notifications sent out regularly.
The last acceptance notifications will be sent within two weeks of the submission deadline.
