Event Description

Welcome to the 17th World Congress of the International Union of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences, which has the overall theme "Evolving Humanity, Emerging Worlds". The congress will be hosted by the University of Manchester with the support of Manchester City Council. This is the first world congress to be held in Britain since the initial meeting of the International Congress of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences in London in 1934. The Congress Agenda is being planned by a UK Organizing Committee which includes anthropologists working in all sub-fields of the discipline. We are proud to be organizing what we hope will be a truly memorable event.

The list of accepted panels is visible here. It is being regularly updated as new panel proposals are reviewed and approved.

The Congress will continue to accept new panel proposals until June 1, 2012. This June 1 deadline is absolutely final and no further proposals will be accepted after that date.

The Congress is built around a series of thematic tracks, into which most panels will fit. The aim is to give a large event structure not to exclude panels that fall outside these themes. Click on Tracks and Panels for more details about themes.

The official congress language will be English and we cannot provide simultaneous translation facilities, but we will consider requests for panels to be in other languages where all interested participants will be able to follow proceedings and/or the organizers supply English translations.

All panels must have a minimum of four speakers to be included in the final programme, but may have more and extend through multiple sessions if required.

All proposals must be made via the online form, which requires contact details, names and emails of any co-convenors, a panel title, a short panel abstract (under 300 characters including spaces!), a long panel abstract (the more normal 250 words), and which track the panel fits into. The contact details taken include date of birth. Please note this is kept private and simply functions to identify you (like a password) when you login into our system later. You may include chairs or discussants, although these can be added subsequently using the login environment. Please use the convention of Firstname Lastname (Insitution). If these roles are to be taken by convenors, then please do not enter your own names there - as it's implicit that this will be the case where other names are not listed.

On submission of the proposal, the proposing convenor (but not the co-convenors) will receive an automated email confirming receipt. If you do not receive this email, please first check the login environment (click login above) to see if your proposal is there. If it is, it simply means your confirmation email got spammed/lost; and if it is not, it means you need to re-submit, as the process went wrong somewhere! The conference organisers will get back to you a few days after the submission with further information.

Please don't try to use this link to propose an individual paper.Go instead to the Paper Proposals section and follow the illustrated instructions given there.
