Application and Submission at JASID&JAHSS Joint International Conference

1. Presentation Sessions (1. Regular, 2. Thematic, 3. Roundtable, 4. Side Event) and Format

The conference presentation sessions include (1) Regular Session, (2) Thematic Session, and (3) Roundtable Session, and (4) Side Event The difference between the sessions is based on the presentation format, not the quality.

Please note that multiple presentations are not allowed at the conference. All the members of JASID or JAHSS are entitled to make only one presentation in one conference if as the first author. However, the members may be named as co-author of several papers. And those students (generally limited to postgraduate students) who like to make a presentation need a recommendation letter from the supervisor.

(1) Regular Session (oral or poster) Presentations at a Regular Session must be in oral or poster presentation format. Oral presentations of similar themes would be organized into one session (2 hours each) by the Conference Committee. The tentative scheduled oral presentation time will be 30 minutes (15 minutes for presentation and 15 minutes for discussion). The best presentation award will be given at the poster presentation.

(2) Thematic Session and (3) Roundtable Session All the members of each society can organize a Thematic Session and a Roundtable Session with several related presentations. Please consider your proposal for these sessions.

(4) Side Event Additionally, to those sessions from (1) to (3), this year especially we will welcome proposals of side event for the conference which are especially related to our conference theme of Refugees/Migrants and Education/Employment. Of course, the main person of the proposal should obtain membership of either society. However, the event itself may engage non-member people or organizations to collaborate actively to have a fruitful place for discussion or presentation on the theme. Since we have so limited time and spaces, those who are willing to apply to this side event should have consultations to the secretariat office before acceptation.
