Call for papers / posters

How to submit a contribution:

Call for papers opens on 16 December. Proposing an oral or poster contribution can only be done via online submission form available at Current and past EAA members can log in using their EAA credentials (EAA ID, username, password). For assistance with retrieving credentials, please contact the EAA Secretariat at Make sure that all personal information is up-to-date before submitting your proposal. Please do not create a new account in case you had one in the past. New members need to sign up for EAA account first at Just after that, you will find your EAA ID in your profile (under Membership > My EAA Membership, when signed in at EAA website). As presenter (first = main = presenting author), you can either pay your membership fees upon signing up or at any time before 22 April 2021 when registering for the Annual Meeting at Please note that eventually all Annual Meeting delegates must be current EAA members (paid-up for 2021) and pay AM registration fee.

The person who is submitting the contribution is considered the first - main - presenting author. One person may present two contributions as first author. Maximum number of authors is ten, incl. main author. No exceptions are possible. If you are involved in other contributions as co-author we can not guarantee that these presentations will not be scheduled during the same time slot.
Co-authors need to pay membership and AM registration just in case they attend the Annual Meeting in person. 

Notes for speakers and checklist for poster presentations are available here.

Please note: EAA 2021 has (A) Regular sessions, and (B) Discussion sessions. Regular sessions include both papers and posters, oral presentations are usually 15 minutes long. In all other sessions, the format of contributions is determined by the session organisers. Discussion sessions can either consist of pre-circulated papers, a keynote paper and discussion (papers), pecha kucha presentations (six slides in six minutes 40 seconds), posters exclusively, contributions to a discussion session etc. In some cases formal requirements have not yet been met by session organisers, so these sessions are not available for submission of contributions yet and therefore are greyed out in the list of sessions - please check later for their availability. The list is updated regularly, the final list of sessions will be announced on 1 February.

Call for contributions ends on  Thursday 11 February 2021, 23:59 CET. After this date the session organisers and the Scientific Committee will evaluate all contributions and sessions and decide whether the contribution is accepted, rejected, recommended for revision or suggested for different session than submitted to. Following the evaluation by both session organisers and the Scientific Committee, the EAA Secretariat will announce accepted contributions before 23 March 2021. Presenters (first authors) then need to settle both payment of membership and AM registration fee before 22 April 2021, in order to have the contribution added to the scientific programme of the Annual Meeting.

Evaluation of sessions

The Scientific Committee has evaluated all session proposals and decided whether the session is accepted, rejected, recommended for revision or suggested for merger with another similarly themed session. The information was sent by email "EAA 2021 Kiel - result of session's evaluation" on 3 December, please search also the spam folder. The sessions accepted subject to changes need to provide revised abstract before 10 December 2020.

Following the evaluation by the Scientific Committee, the EAA Secretariat opens all approved sessions (that fulfil also all formal criteria - payment of EAA membership and Annual Meeting registration fee before Monday 14 December 2020 by at least two organisers from at least two different countries) for the abstract submission of oral or poster presentations on Wednesday 16 December 2020.

Please note that eventually all session organisers, as well as all participants of the Annual Meeting, have to settle both fees. 

The list of accepted sessions is available below. Sessions accepted to changes will appear only once fully accepted. The list is updated regularly.
