Session types

Please note: EAA 2023 Annual Meeting has (A) Regular sessions, and (B) Other sessions. Regular sessions include both papers and posters, oral presentations are usually 15 minutes long. All other sessions have a special format, the format of contributions is determined by the session organisers. Other sessions can either consist of (pre-circulated) papers, a keynote paper followed by other papers and discussion, pecha kucha presentations (six slides in 6 minutes), posters exclusively, contributions to a discussion session, etc. Roundtables do not receive papers submissions, only provide list of authors before end of Call for papers. Please note that all participants in the sessions will have to be current EAA Members and pay conference fee to be able to attend the session.


The call for sessions will close on Monday 14 November 2022, 23:59 CET (extended deadline). After the deadline, the Scientific Committee will evaluate all session proposals and decide whether the session is accepted, rejected, recommended for revision or suggested for merger with another similarly themed session. 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 Thursday 15 December 2022 by at least two organisers from at least two different countries) for the abstract submission of oral or poster presentations on Tuesday 20 December 2022. Please note that eventually all session organisers, as well as all participants of the Annual Meeting, have to settle both fees. 

The following main principles for sessions apply:

  • The maximum modular length of sessions and round tables is limited to full-day (4 blocks of 2 hours each, containing up to 28 oral presentations).
  • The time allowed for the presentation of individual papers is 15 minutes. However, flexibility may be given to individual session organisers to reduce the length of time allowed for each paper in order to include more papers, depending also on the format of the particular session.
  • All session organisers need to settle EAA membership and Annual Meeting registration fee before the deadline set.
  • One person may organise no more than one session or round table as the first organiser, but may be co-organiser of one other session.
  • Session co-organisers should be from more than one country.
  • Maximum number of session organisers is 5, including the main organiser.
