The conference program groups together presentations along similar themes to facilitate knowledge sharing and community building. The first schedule of sessions will be available when we're able to present a complete picture of the conference. In the meantime, you may view a list of all accepted proposals (both confirmed to attend and still pending registration) on our List of Accepted Proposals.

We have a strong commitment to providing opportunities for conference participants to interact, converse, and learn from each other. Built into the conference program are a number of "in person" and "virtual" sessions types that are designed specifically to promote interactions among members of the Research Network.

The program will be announced two months prior to the conference start date. If you have an accepted proposal, make sure you register to be included in the program.

We invite proposals for paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters/exhibits, virtual lightning talks, virtual posters, or colloquia addressing one of the following themes:

2017 Special Focus: Global Mobilities:
The conference seeks to examine the different types of mobilities that constitute contemporary forms of globalisation, which are often understood as sets of processes that generally reduce the costs and obstacles to movements across borders. These movements include money and capital, migrants and labour, ideas and norms, practices and policies of government, resistance and terrorism, technology transfers and data flows, and environmental factors such as pollution and disease. Each one of these concepts and processes is governed by a different logic of mobility both causally and normatively, which suggests that there is no single correct frame for studying all of them. As such, the conference also proposes to investigate the theory and practice of global studies, examining its status as an emerging field, its relationship to the study of global justice, and its connections with activism.
