the deadline for call for sections (specialised panels) for International Congress of Belarusian Studies (October, 11-13, 2013; Kaunas, Lithuania) is coming on 5 March.
Sections (panels) are supposed to be sites for discussion of particular research problems or presentation of results of scholarly activity within certain disciplines or research fields.
Organising committee does not set any restrictions regarding discipline or topic of the panel, and thus suggests that academic and research communities articulate their own priorities and interests.
Sections (panels) can be disciplinary, thematic or focus on particular narrow problems. We also accept applications for sections that will discuss important social and political issues.
We expect that formation of sections and panels through an open call will approximate the Congress to the needs and expectations of academic and expert community.
Organising committee calls upon research institutions and communities as well as academic leaders to participate in the design of thematic priorities of the Congress.
Applications can be made by individuals, groups or institutions.
Applications are due to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 March 2013 and should contain the following:
1) preliminary section (panel) name;
2) a short concept (one paragraph)
3) preliminary list of participants
