1st Reminder: Call for papers

Modification of abstract submission rules and extension of submission deadline

On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the IV WPSC I can announce that any problems with registration or submission procedures at the event's website have been resolved. We apologize for any trouble that might have happened.

To facilitate the submission of abstracts and given a request from the Steering Committee of GPEAN, the Organizing Committee has decided to reduce the minimum size of abstracts to 4,000 characters, approximately 700 words.
We have decided, also, to extend the deadline for submission of abstracts for two three weeks:

The new deadline is October 19th, 2015 October, 26th, 2015 (10/26/2015)

We are looking forward to receive your abstracts through the procedures explained in Call for Papers and Submissions.

Ways to submit abstracts

The tracks accept proposals of extended abstracts for:

(i) Individual submission (with several co-authors) for a particular track as oral presentation of a full paper (non peer review); and (ii) proposals for the collective organization of Roundtable/Panel within a track, which features contributions from several authors. (iii) Other modalities like Poster Presentation or Specially Convened Sessions – (a) academic only; (b) policy research only; and (c) academic and policy research - have to be combined directly with the co-chairs of the tracks. Those, who want to participate in these modalities, must be registered necessarily for attendance.
