15th International Conference EAJS : Call for Panels and Papers

Next EAJS International Conference

The 15th EAJS International Conference will be held from 30 August to 2 September 2017 in Lisbon, Portugal.

The European Association for Japanese Studies invites paper and panel proposals for the forthcoming 15th EAJS International Conference. Panel and paper proposals should be written in English and submitted no later than 14 December 2016. Please note that only paid-up EAJS members can present papers at the conference. However, membership is not required at the time of submitting proposals.

All panels and papers must be proposed online. The proposal link follows, but please read all the rules and instructions first. Please note that no delegates may be on the programme in more than one session. Any audio-visual equipment requirements you might have need to be submitted together with your proposal.

Call for panels

Panels can be proposed, in a two-stage process, with up to three pre-agreed papers within them. Proposals must consist of:

  • a panel title
  • name and email addresses of the panel convenors
  • a short abstract of fewer than 300 characters (including spaces)
  • a long abstract of 350 words, explaining the overall focus of the panel
  • an indication of which section the panel belongs to

Once the panel has been proposed, the conference administrators will send the panel proposers a panel-specific URL by which the authors of the agreed papers, must submit their titles and abstracts.

The panel proposal may also include the names of any chairs or discussants, although these can be added subsequently using the login environment – please use the convention of Firstname Lastname (Institution). If these roles are to be taken by convenors, then please do not enter your own names there – as it’s implicit that this will be the case where other names are not listed.

Sessions will normally last for 90 minutes. Individual papers should not exceed 15-20 minutes. Conveners will organize individual papers into topic-related sessions, which require active participation and joint discussions of all presenters at the end of the respective sessions. There may be up to three individual papers in the 90-minute session. If a proposed panel is organized, it should include three papers, followed by a discussant’s comments at the end of the session. The designated discussant should be included in the proposal.

Any problems in using the forms please contact eajs(at)nomadit.co.uk.

Call for papers

Paper proposals (both individual papers and those proposed to a specific panel) must consist of:

  • the paper title
  • name and email addresses of the authors
  • a short abstract of fewer than 300 characters (including spaces)
  • a long abstract of fewer than 350 words

All paper proposals must be made via the online form, not by email. If you are proposing a pre-agreed paper to a panel, please obtain the panel-specific URL from the panel proposers.
If you are proposing an individual paper, please use the links below for individual papers within each section.

Papers should generally be presented in English, but may be presented in Japanese if necessary and must have an abstract in English.

On submission of the proposal, the proposing author (but not the co-authors) will receive an email confirming receipt. If you do not receive this email, please first check the login environment – (use the head icon in the toobar above) to see if your proposal is there. If it is, it simply means your confirmation email got spammed/lost; if it is not, you will need to re-submit, as for some reason the process was not completed. Co-authors cannot be added/removed, nor can papers be withdrawn by the proposers themselves – for that, please email eajs(at)nomadit.co.uk

Any problems in using the forms please contact eajs(at)nomadit.co.uk.


Proposals will be marked as pending until the end of the call for panels and papers, at which point convenors of each section will decide on which panels and which individual papers to accept. All proposals will be assessed anonymously. The accepted panels will be accepted ‘as is’, and the accepted individual papers will be grouped into sessions. Applicants will be informed of the selection results by the end of January 2017.  Accepted presenters will be asked to submit a short, one paragraph biographical statement.
