Call for Panels

Continuing the approach adopted in the 2018 EASST conference in Lancaster, the 2022 conference involves a first stage call for panels and convenors, with a subsequent call for papers and sessions. The conference will be organized in parallel sessions of panels that may run through part or the whole of the conference.

This call for panels comprises alternative open formats, including “tracks”.
