53rd Annual Conference of the Canadian Sociological Association

January 28, 2019

Abstracts Submission Requirements

  • Abstracts must be submitted online between November 19, 2018 and January 28, 2019 (11:59 PM – PST)
  • An abstract may be submitted to only one specific CSA conference session
    If declined, it may then be considered for another session or omnibus session upon the author or session organizer’s request
  • The association recognizes that there may be situations in which there are pedagogical and professional benefits to presenting at multiple associations at Congress. The CSA encourages its members, as a matter of good practice, to inform both associations of their submission in order to facilitate and foster future collaborative efforts.
  • An abstract submitted by a session organizer to his or her own session must be reviewed by a co-organizer, a session organizer within the Research Cluster, or the Conference Program Committee
    Our office must be informed that this process has been completed before February 15, 2019
  • Abstracts may be in English and/or French but the session organizer may request a translation for review purposes
  • Abstracts should be between 100-200 words (or up to 400 words if both English and French versions are submitted simultaneously)
  • Ensure all co-authors (including email and affiliation) are included in the applicable online submission form fields
  • The general CSA policy allows participants 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)
  • The association must be notified immediately if there are changes to the abstract or if it has been withdrawn from consideration
  • CSA membership is not required in order to submit an abstract however, association membership as well as congress delegate registration is mandatory once the paper has been approved for presentation (deadline: April 15, 2019)
    Paper co-authors neither presenting nor attending the Conference are exempt from these policies
    Exceptions may apply in the case of joint or co-sponsored sessions (contact us for further information)
