Rules for All Presenters

Participants may be listed no more than twice in the Program. This includes all types of activities requiring physical presence: chair or co-chair, author or co-author (oral or poster presentation, distributed paper), roundtable presenter, panelist, critic, discussant.
In addition, participants may be listed in the Program up to two more times as Program Coordinators and/or Session Organizers.
RC/WG/TGs can further limit the number of appearances within their own sessions.
A participant cannot present and chair in the same session.
- ISA and RC/WG/TG membership
ISA does not require anyone to be a member in order to present a paper, and provides different registration fees for members and non-members. Those RCs which require that presenters in their sessions are members of the RC, and/or also of ISA, should clearly inform potential presenters about these requirements from the very start of conference preparations.
- Registration payment
In order to be included in the program the participants (presenters, chairs, discussants, etc.) must pay registration fees by April 5, 2016. If not registered, their names will not appear in the Program Book and in the Abstracts Book.
In case of a co-authored paper, in order for a paper to appear in the program, at least one co-author must pay the registration fee by the early registration deadline April 5, 2016; the names of other co-authors will be listed as well.
If other co-authors wish to attend the conference they must pay the registration fee.
- Full papers submission
ISA does not collect and does not publish papers presented at its conferences. Each Research Committee, Working and Thematic Group establishes its own rules on full papers submissions. Please contact your Session Organiser for further instructions.
- Poster session
The space reserved by the Local Organizing Committee for Poster Sessions allows for up to 27 posters (size 90 cm x 120 cm). Each RC will be given a specific date/time for its Poster Session.
