    Please note: Some sessions due to special funding situations and programs are invited papers only and are marked as closed (these sessions are generally open to participation, though). Session proposers have been asked to fill out various data about their session proposals, but this information has not all been gathered, so please be aware that changes will occur and extra information will be added to some of the sessions later.

  • Prospects for the funding of your participation in the Congress. We hope to be able to provide some travel funding to students, early career researchers, indigenous participants, and participants from Russia (and countries who have limited means to attend). To apply for travel funding, please complete the appropriate sections of the Abstract Submittal form. If you are an Early Career Scholar please also complete the online APECS Travel Funding Application for ICASS VIII (click here for the link to the form). You will need to provide a rough budget of your estimated travel expenses. We anticipate announcing the travel awards in late February 2014.

  • A maximum of two paper proposals per person please, although you may submit as many posters as you wish.

Completed forms should be e-mailed to:
IASSA Secretary, Cher Mazo

The deadline for submitting paper and poster abstracts is
17 December 2013.
