The EISS Conference features both ‘closed’ and ‘open’ panels.
‘Closed’ panels focus on themes decided by the EISS (cf. the program below). Each panel includes four papers and the chair serves as discussant.
In ‘Open’ panels, participants propose a panel’s title, a chair, and four speakers. The chair serves as discussant. The ‘open panels’ are meant to broaden the range of existing themes in the EISS and to provide greater latitude to the participants to contribute to the definition of the EISS program.
Selection Criteria for Closed and Open panels are: (1) quality and originality of the panel/paper proposal; (2) multidisciplinarity and/or interdisciplinarity (history, political science, sociology, etc.). The panels should focus on specific themes that can be addressed from a variety of disciplines. N.B. Each panel must also include scholars from disciplines other than political science; (3) represent different European countries/regions (western, northern, eastern, central, southern Europe), as per participants’ affiliation; (4) and allow for gender diversity.
Deadlines and practical information
•New deadlines for updated papers will be communicated in time.
• The registration rate is €30 per participant.
• Travel/accommodation expenses: no funding is provided by the EISS. Applicants are advised to seek funding for travel/accommodation from their home institution.

If a university is not able to cover the travel/accommodation expenses, the EISS also considers applications that are individually-funded or funded by third sources.
• Conference speakers will send their complete papers to the chair ahead of the conference.
• Organization of each panel: 4 presentations (10 min. each); 20 min. discussion between chair/discussant and panelists; 30 min. Q&A with audience.
