- June 7: The abstract submission interface opens. Only abstracts received through the NeMLA portal will be considered. Email submissions should be directed to the portal.
- October 15 (extended for 2024 convention) is the deadline to submit abstracts. To ensure fair consideration, please refrain from accepting any until then.
- October 15-October 20: Chairs accept or decline abstracts. To do so, log in and click "Manage" next to your session's title. Please await confirmation from each participant on your panel as they may have submitted several abstracts and chosen another panel.
- October 20 (extended for 2024 convention): The deadline for chairs to finalize sessions.
Please note that 2-paper sessions are not viable so please consider accepting 4 papers for traditional panels and roundtables so a withdrawal does not threaten the viability of your session.
NeMLA encourages livetweeting our sessions but asks that you do so responsibly and with respect to our presenters: make sure to attribute the ideas to the speaker, and if you are planning to tweet more than 20% of the talk, ask permission from the presenter before doing so.
If you have any questions, ideas, or concerns regarding session chair guidelines, do not hesititate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org and your session's Area Director.
