Presentation Guidelines

  • The general CSA-SCS policy allows up to two different paper presentations and up to three presentations including panels and plenary (participation as session chair or discussant does not count in these limits)
  • Papers should be original unpublished contributions to sociological research, of defensible conceptual and methodological merit
  • Presentation time is limited within the 90 minute session time-slot
    • 20 minutes each for a session with three presentations and a discussant
    • 15 minutes each for a session with four presentations and a discussant
    • 20 minutes each for a session with four presentations and no discussant
    • 15 minutes each for a session with five presentations (the role of discussant will not be included)
  • Presentations may be in English and/or French but if the session is predominantly in another language, the session organizer may request that translated hand-outs or visual aids be provided for the other presenters and/or attendees
  • Virtual presentations via skype or phone must be pre-approved by the Conference planning committee and the presenters are still required to comply with all Conference participation policies
  • The association must be notified immediately if there are changes to any presentation title or abstract, or if a presentation is withdrawn from the session
  • Papers must be presented in the order they appear in the programme
