The deadline (September 30, 2013 24:00 GMT) to submit your proposals for the 2014 ISA World Congress of Sociology is rapidly approaching:
Please note that unlike previous world conferences:
1) Only abstracts submitted on-line will be considered in the selection process (no e-mail).
2) The research committees will NOT be able to autonomously extend the deadline of September 30, 2013 24:00 GMT (since the submission is centralized and web based).
3) The abstract text cannot contain more than 300 words.
