A) Membership: CIES membership is required to present at the CIES 2018 Conference. To join CIES please go to http://www.cies.us/?page=Join. Note that CIES membership is not required at time of proposal submission. If you are not presently a member you may still submit a conference proposal, but you must join once your proposal is accepted.
B) Participant attendance requirement: All presenters of accepted proposals are expected to attend the CIES conference and be present at their scheduled session. If an emergency or other circumstance prevents any authors/presenters from attending the CIES Conference, they should immediately notify the organizer of the panel (the SIG representative, or for General Pool submissions contact firstname.lastname@example.org). CIES is not able to accommodate pre-recorded or virtual (online/Skype) presentations and requires that at minimum at least one of the paper presenters be present at the conference.
C) Participation limits: To allow as many conference attendees to present as possible, individuals may submit only one proposal for a panel presentation, paper session, poster session, or roundtable session. An individual may appear as a presenter only once in the final program. The only exceptions to this will be made in the case of special invited sessions, certain special events, as well as for participants in Book Launch sessions or New Scholars Committee Dissertation Mentoring Workshops or Publication workshops. Additional exceptions will be made for those who are listed as non-presenting authors in multi-authored papers. Likewise, this rule does not apply to people serving in a discussant or chair role.
To avoid duplication of presentation content, individuals with multiple roles may not present the same material in different sessions. For example, if your paper is accepted at a Dissertation Mentoring Workshop, you will not be able to present the same paper for an individual paper or group panel session. Final decisions on the limits to individual participation in the annual meeting will be made at the discretion of the program committee.
D) Equipment: Standard presentation equipment (LCD and overhead projectors and PowerPoint-equipped PCs) will be available for all paper and panel sessions — however, presentation equipment is NOT provided for roundtable sessions or for poster sessions. Note that presentation slides and electronic materials should be formatted to be compatible with PC/Microsoft Windows. Though there will be Internet access in the conference meeting rooms, we suggest that presentations as well as related files also be saved to your own personal USB/“memory stick” and be ready to upload prior to your presentation.
E) Proposal review and selection process: All submitted proposals will undergo blind peer review by experienced scholars and advanced doctoral students in the field of comparative and international education using the CIES 2018 Review Criteria. No identifying information you provide will be seen by our volunteer reviewers, except in the case of Book Launch and Pre-Conference Workshop proposals, which do not undergo blind review.
F) Revisions to submissions after acceptance: CIES allows for minor changes to be made to presentation titles and abstracts after proposal acceptance. We also permit changes to the list of presenting and non- presenting authors. To make such changes, please contact the organizer of your panel (who will be indicated in your acceptance email). However, because of our blind peer review during the submission process, we generally do not permit the addition of new papers/presenters to an accepted group panel or group roundtable. Any requests for changes must be received by February 1, 2018.
