Submission and participation guidelines
The official language of the Congress and Congress program is English. Abstracts and panel sessions in other languages, including Spanish, Portuguese, and Turkish are considered and encouraged, for the Pre-Congress conference day (two days before the beginning of the official Congress).
Panel submissions are comprised of at least four (4) but not more than five (5) papers, each paper with full abstract and author information. Proposals with incomplete abstract/author information will not be considered. Panels are guaranteed an 80-minute slot (individual paper presentations are expected to run 12-15 minutes).
Abstracts for panels, or individual papers, are limited to 150 words.
Each panel requires a chair, which can be self-nominated (during the submission process) or assigned by Congress organizers.
We welcome proposals that broadly cover both traditional and experimental approaches to and practices of qualitative research. Our Congress is committed to helping qualitative researchers from all disciplines and all parts of the world participate in an all-inclusive dialogue about the state of the art in qualitative research.
All congress sessions take place at venues on the University of Illinois campus.
