respects after similar readings or publication.

D) Dual Submission
Topics have been defined broadly in brochures included here. In order
to discourage multiple submissions of the same paper, the following submission
policies have been set:
(1) Papers may not be submitted to more than one session; and
(2) In cases of dual submission, authors are required to notify us
of this fact and to indicate preference on the submission cover sheet.

H) Program Policies
A "participant" is anyone who is anyone who is listed as a paper author,
critic, panellist, workshop / seminar leader, discussion leader, or any
other type of presenter or coordinator on any program session. A "registrant"
is anyone who has registered to the Global Dialogue 2021. People from
the General Public are registrants and may attend the Global Dialogue 2021.
All participants on the Annual Meeting Program must preregister for
the meeting before May 31, 2020. A preregistration form is provided on
this website. Participants are required to pay registration fees.
I) Regular Session Topics
The scheduling of the activities of the Global Dialogue 2021 Regular
Session Topics is the responsibility of Global Dialogue 2021 Organizing Committee.
Section activities will be pre-assigned to specific days and sessions
times but will not be finalized until the overall program schedule is completed.
Regular session topics are broad topics for open submissions.
J) Open Refereed Roundtables
These sessions are not intended to compete with Section sessions. Rather,
since many topics are not covered by Sections, these sessions will allow
individuals heretofore excluded from the active interaction of refereed
roundtable presentation to find a place on the Program.
An Open Refereed Roundtable paper presentation will be classified as
an authorship under the participation rules. Table topics, presiders, and
paper titles with authors’ names and affiliations will be listed in the
Program. Papers accepted for presentation in Open Refereed Roundtable Sessions
will be eligible for Global Dialogue 2021 Abstract and Paper
Paper submissions for Open Topic Refereed Roundtables must meet the
same criteria as for Regular Sessions and the Submission Cover Sheet
accompany each submitted paper. Members interested in presiding at an open
roundtable may submit a letter of interest that identifies their current
area(s) of expertise.
K) Informal Discussion Roundtables
Informal Discussion Roundtables are valuable for those who are developing
new ideas or formulating issues in new ways and who like to explore these
ideas or issues with colleagues who have similar interests. These discussion
sessions also offer an opportunity for those who share conceptual, methodological,
professional, or policy concerns to meet one another and to initiate and
These sessions are not intended to be avenues for formal paper presentation.
Such papers should be submitted to organizers of Regular Sessions, Section
Sessions, or Open Refereed Roundtable sessions. Informal Discussion Roundtables
are development and discussion opportunities. Discussion presentations
are not eligible for the Global Dialogue 2021 Abstract and Paper Services.
Those wishing to propose a topic or issue for discussion should send
a one-page summary describing the topic/issue to Global Dialogue 2021.
L) Student Sessions
Global Dialogue 2021 welcomes the participation of school, undergraduate
and graduate students.
All sessions listed in the Call for Papers are open to submissions
from students. The three paper sessions and the roundtable session sponsored
by the Global Dialogue 2021 Honours Program are organized by student members and
are thus listed as "Student Sessions."
Student session organizers work under the same guidelines as Regular
Session organizers and are subject to the submission criteria, deadlines,
and program policies listed in the Call for Papers.
M) Section Sessions
These sessions include formal paper-reading sessions, refereed roundtable
sessions, and informal roundtable sessions.
All Section program activities are subject to the submission criteria,
deadlines, and program policies listed in the Call for Papers. All
sessions will be one hour and 45 minutes in length, unless noted otherwise.
