Papers as submitted are limited to 20 pages, including footnotes, table, and bibliographies. Details of empirical data and procedures of collection and analysis should be reserved for handouts or written versions.

Send us also a hardcopy of your paper directly to the office. We will let you know of our new post office address at a later day.

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.

E)     How to send

Each paper submission must include a completed Submission Cover Sheet which must be filled out completely, including names and addresses of all co-authors.

F)     Manuscript Handling

Authors who want an acknowledgment of receipt of the paper must include a self-addressed, stamped postcard. Manuscripts will not be returned unless accompanied by a stamped, self-addressed envelope.

G)     Deadline

The final deadline for submission of individual abstracts and papers, videos, presentations, panel discussions and workshop proposals, facilitated groups, and of photographic, poster and dramatic displays dealing with pertinent themes, and students' creative work is March 24, year 2004.

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 2004. People from the General Public are registrants and may attend the Global Dialogue 2004.

All participants on the Annual Meeting Program must preregister for the meeting before May 31, 2004. 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 2004 Regular Session Topics is the responsibility of Global Dialogue 2004 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 forGlobal Dialogue 2004 Abstract and Paper Services.

Paper submissions for Open Topic Refereed Roundtables must meet the same criteria as for Regular Sessions and the Submission Cover Sheet must 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 expand networks.

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 2004 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 2004.

L)    Student Sessions

  Global Dialogue 2004 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 2004 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.
