Which type of paper do you want to submit?
OPEN - Academic Paper or Session

The conference programme committee welcomes proposals on all aspects of economic and social history covering a wide range of periods and countries and, particularly, papers of an interdisciplinary nature. Preference may be given to scholars who did not present a paper at the previous year's conference. Those currently studying for, or who have recently completed, a PhD should submit a proposal to the New Researcher session.

OPEN - New Researcher Paper

The annual conference opens with papers presented by new researchers. They offer those completing (or who have recently completed) doctorates the opportunity to present their own, sole-authored, work before professional colleagues and to benefit from informed comment. Please note that proposals from researchers at an early stage of their work will not normally be accepted and applicants should consider making a proposal to the new researcher poster session.

OPEN - New Researcher Poster

The conference programme committee welcomes sole-authored posters from graduate students at an early stage of pursuing their PhD, i.e. having completed at least one full year of study; collaborative work is not eligible.  Graduate students who have presented a poster will be eligible to apply to present a paper in the New Researcher session in a subsequent year, but may present in a poster session only once during their graduate career.
