General and Non-colloquia Session Papers

  • Paper presentations will be allocated 25 minutes + 5 minutes for questions and answers.
  • Timekeepers will be provided by the SOAS GLOCAL CALA 2022 if needed.
  • 18-word maximum presentation title.
  • 400-word maximum abstract, including references.
  • For individual papers submitted for review and acceptance into the general sessions, the first author will be the nominated ‘Corresponding Author’ but can also be a ‘Presenting Author.’

  • Colloquia provide an opportunity for several presenters within the boundaries of a theme or topic to present together in a supportive environment. Colloquium organizers can tailor time lengths to each presentation, but must allow time to include opening and closing remarks, presentations, and audience interaction.
  • The colloquium chair is responsible for organizing the group and for submitting the colloquium abstract (and sub abstracts) to the Call for Papers platform on behalf of all other contributors withing the colloquium.
  • All colloquium submissions must be uploaded to the submission site using the Colloquium Submission Form Template provided.
  • Panel organizers here will be responsible for panel chairs. Time keepers will be provided by the SOAS GLOCAL CALA 2022.

Poster Presentations

  • Posters are for one-on-one discussion of a symposium-related theme or topic.
  • A block of time will be allocated for presenters to discuss their posters.
  • Posters will be displayed online throughout the SOAS GLOCAL CALA 2022.
  • Presenters will each be given a full personal page for their poster(s).
  • Posters should be in electronic format, and should be read as clearly as would be a poster of size A0: 841 x 1189 mm width x height/ 33.1 x 46.8 inches width x height. However, these posters will be reduced to A4 size, where viewers will click and expand so as to read all text. Here, the posters must be in ultra-high-quality PDF format.
  • Submissions should contain a summary of key elements for the presentation.
  • Posters can include any relevant visuals or academically descriptive objects, where color is visually optimal.
  • Posters must be clear, concise, and simple, with large fonts, with the title of the project, and author information (name and affiliation).
  • A guiding but not necessary template for posters can be found at this link.
