Deadline Extension for More Inclusive

2021-05-04 > Back

Dear ISSP Community and friends,

The ISSP 15th World Congress Committee has heard from all members struggling to meet the deadline given unforeseen pandemic-related circumstances. These circumstances impact each of us differently. Therefore, we have decided to extend the submission deadline to May 31 at 11:59 pm.

Additionally, “Inclusiveness” is a central part of the ISSP Mission. We are now applying this mission to congress presentations and opportunities for scholars and practitioners from around the world.

We encourage our friends to submit all type of presentations and regarding SYMPOSIUM, the enhanced presentation format will permit presenters to develop their “oral delivery” in the language one chooses, as opposed to an exclusive option of English. The development in format structure to suit our membership is as follows:

  1. All SYMPOSIUM abstracts must send by English as usual.
  2. Regarding SYMPOSIUM, oral presentation/PPT text is preferred to use English, but any mother tongue language will be accepted.
  3. Regarding SYMPOSIUM, the final conclusion/or discussant materials should be presented briefly in English.

We look forward to your participation in the ISSP Congress.
