Participant Rules
When submitting and accepting panel and individual paper proposals, please follow the following four participation rules:

Rule 1: Participation Limitation
Please note that participation is limited to (2) roles, with a maximum of (1) paper author role. This allows for an individual to have up to (2) non-author presenter appearances (for example, on a roundtable or Author Meets Critics panel), or (1) non-author presenter role and (1) paper author role.  Chair and discussant roles are service roles and do not count towards this limit.

An attendee may present only one paper at the conference, but may appear on the program as a non-presenting co-author on two other papers without exceeding participation limits.

Paper author roles are included on full paper panels, as well as mini-conferences. These roles are listed as “Author” in the submission system and participants will upload a paper to correspond with their presentation.

Non-author presenter roles are traditionally in roundtables, Author Meets Critics, cafés, workshops, and mini-conferences. These roles are listed as “Presenter” in the submission system. Presenters do not author a paper for these appearances.

Exemptions

  • Participation as a non-presenting co-author does not count towards the Author presentation limit.

  • Participation as a discussant or chair does not count towards any appearance limits.

  • Participation in a theme panel is an allowed third role/appearance.

  • Participating in or presenting a paper on a panel organized by  Division 10: Political Science Education does not count towards these limits.

  • If a person is appearing during a panel session as an author or co-author presenter, serving as chair or discussant of the same session does not count towards the participation limit.

  • Participation as a leader of a pre-conference short course does not count towards the participation limit.

  • Participation in TLC at ASA is exempt.

  • Participation in a Lightning Round is exempt. 

There are no other exemptions from the participation limits.

Rule 2: Pre-registration
ASA requires all program participants to pre-register by June 15, 2022. Participants who do not pre-register by June 15 may be removed from the program.

Rule 3: Paper Delivery
As a paper presenter, you have an important obligation to ensure that all members of your panel, especially discussants, receive your paper two (2) weeks prior to the conference, with enough time to prepare for the meeting. Papers should be uploaded to the conference system no later than September 1, 2022.

Rule 4: Panel Schedule
Panels are scheduled in time slots beginning at 8:00 a.m. on Thursday and concluding at 11:30 a.m. on Sunday. Participants are expected to be available for any of the time slots. Please note that due to the large number of participants on the meeting program, scheduling requests are not accepted.
