Thanks to all those who have submitted proposals for papers and panels for the upcoming PSA Convention to be held at the University of Manchester from 11th to 13th September 2019. We are delighted to say that we have received the largest number of submissions for a PSA convention to date.
A number of members have expressed concern about submitting a proposal, or indeed making any travel plans, before the upcoming UK withdrawal from the European Union scheduled to take place on 29th March 2019. In light of this, and to provide as much support and flexibility as possible to our membership and potential members, we will be offering an extended second deadline for receipt of proposals. Our extended second deadline for the receipt of abstracts will be Friday 12 April 2019. As this second is 2 weeks after 29 March, we hope this will help support anyone who wishes to submit a proposal but has not yet done so due to current funding and travel concerns.
Please note that all proposals received up to and on Monday 28 January 2019 will be reviewed as planned in the next 2-3 weeks, with notifications being sent out by the first week of March.
Proposals received after Monday 28 January will be included in our second wave and reviewed after Friday 12 April.
