As you know, the Canadian Sociological Association will be hosting the XIX International Sociological Association's World Congress in Toronto, Ontario in July 15-21, 2018.

The Canadian Sociological Association website features a section which provides information on the event and is regularly updated.  http://www.csa-scs.ca/isa-congress-2018

At the moment, we would like to bring your attention to the call for session proposals to the various RCs (Research Committees), TGs (Thematic Groups) or WGs (Working Groups) at https://isaconf.confex.com/isaconf/wc2018/cfs.cgi.   

Session submissions will be accepted until March 15, 2017. However, individual Research Committees, Thematic Groups or Working Groups participating at Congress may have set their own internal deadlines. Please check with the RC, TG or WG that is of interest to you, or you are a member of, at http://www.isa-sociology.org/en/.  

For those not familiar with the ISA, we have compiled Frequently Asked Questions at http://www.csa-scs.ca/participating-in-the-congress

With an expected attendance of over 6,000 delegates from around the world, the ISA World Congress, the largest international gathering of sociologists, will put the spotlight on Canadian sociology. We encourage you, your colleagues, and students to participate in and promote the ISA World Congress 2018 as an excellent opportunity to engage with the broader international sociological community. In particular, we would like to encourage Canadian sociologists to become involved in the ISA and take the lead in organizing sessions for the Congress, ensuring (i) an international audience for the multiple voices of Canadian sociology; and (ii) as much interaction as possible between Canadian and international colleagues.

If you require any further information, please contact us.
