Call for Submissions - Reminder

As we draw near to the upcoming deadline for the submission of Contributed Papers and Organized Symposium for the AAAE & AEASA Conference 2023, we wish to extend a reminder to you once more. The deadline, March 07, 2023, is rapidly approaching, and it is crucial that you submit your contributions in a timely manner to avoid any last-minute dash.


We are delighted to announce that grants will be made available to support the participation costs of students and early-career researchers whose papers have been accepted into the conference program. To take advantage of this opportunity, please take a moment to review the Sponsorships tab on our website and also note that our association is working tirelessly to secure additional sponsorships.


For those who are interested in receiving support from the donors who have pledged support, please follow the procedure outlined below:


• If you are applying for JRC or PARI sponsorships, kindly indicate your interest on the paper you submit. All provisionally accepted papers with this indication will be sent to the relevant institution for review, and successful applicants will be notified for further communication.


Even if you are not successful in this round, you will still be eligible for the soon-to-be-available early-career scholarships. Furthermore, if you are an early-career scholar (under 40 years old, with or without a PhD, or received your PhD after 2013), and your paper has been provisionally accepted, you will be invited to apply for a scholarship, subject to the availability of funds.


It is important to submit your contributions by the deadline to ensure that there is sufficient time for peer review and communication with the authors of accepted papers. Your participation and support are critical to the success of the conference and we eagerly anticipate your submissions.


Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are always here to support and assist you in any way we can.


Wishing you all the best,

"Even a small community

can make a

big difference"
