Conference Submission and Award Guidelines

Submissions for the 2023 conference will open 10 November 2022. 

The submission portal can be found here:

SASE is committed to a diverse membership and lively intellectual debates and encourages panels that include or are likely to include a diverse group of participants.

For SASE’s annual conference, submissions can be made in English or Spanish, but please note that SASE’s principal working language is English. Paper submissions in Spanish should be submitted to the Spanish-language Network M unless otherwise specified by network or mini-conference organizers.

For SASE-RISE conferences, submissions can be made in Spanish, Portuguese, and English.


It is possible to submit in two different categories: Individual Papers and Sessions.

To submit an individual presentation, you must include an abstract. The abstract submission deadline is 1 February 2023.  Please note: if your abstract submission is accepted, some Networks and all mini-conferences require the submission of a full paper by 15 June 2023.

Three kinds of session can be submitted: pre-formed panels with multiple paper presentations, roundtable discussion panels, and Author-Meets-Critics sessions.

SASE network and mini-conference organizers welcome both full sessions and individual papers.

Attention: no author may present more than two papers, regardless of whether the papers have co-authors.

No paper may be submitted twice to different networks or mini-conferences.


The Early Career Workshop provides additional career development and networking opportunities at SASE for PhD students and researchers having obtained their PhD within 3 years of the annual SASE meeting, as well as for early career scholars without institutional affiliation. It is a one-day workshop that runs the day before the main conference and is hosted by senior SASE professors, including a pre-Workshop networking event, sessions on getting published, career development, and an introduction to socio-economics. It will also provide an opportunity for a longer and deeper discussion of applicants’ conference papers.

To be eligible for the Early Career Workshop, you must either be a PhD student or a researcher having obtained your PhD within 3 years of the annual SASE meeting, or an early career scholar without institutional affiliation. Previous workshop participants may not apply for this award.

To apply for the Workshop, your paper abstract should be submitted and accepted to the main conference through the normal process. Applicants must also submit the following materials in English before the general submission period ends:

  • full paper
  • two-page CV
  • one-page case for support – a letter detailing why you wish to attend the workshop and what financial support you require from SASE (approximate cost of travel, whether you need housing during the conference, and what support you have from your home institution)

Any application without all of these elements will not be considered for inclusion in the Workshop. The deadline for these materials is the same as the general deadline for submissions.

While two papers may be submitted to the SASE conference, applicants may submit only one paper, under 10,000 words, to be considered for the Early Career Workshop. Only those papers accepted to the main conference are considered by the Workshop Organizing Committee for additional inclusion in the Workshop.

Each Early Career Workshop participant has their full main conference fee and membership waived.

There will be approximately 15-20 competitively allocated places at the Workshop.  Notification of acceptance will be sent out approximately 3 months before the annual meeting.

You will need the following information for submission: submission information (title, abstract), and author information (name, email address, affiliation, country). You can return to your submission and modify it at any time prior to the deadline.

Once you have completed your submission, you will receive an automated email informing you that it has been received, providing you with an additional link to your submission. You can return to your submission with this link at any time to edit prior to the submission deadline.
