Call for Panels
The Organizing Committee of 4S4D is seeking to offer a small number of high value Panels during the conference proceedings, with topics that (a) are consistent with the conference theme and (b) appeal to a broad range of the conference attendees. The Committee is seeking proposals for Panels as follows:
- Please submit a Panel outline of approximately 800 to 1000 words, clearly stating a working title for the Panel, the overall theme of the Panel and specific topics to be explored. We encourage Panels highly relevant to the context of developing regions, particularly Africa.
- Please propose the Panel Moderator (yourself or someone else). Working with the Panels Chair and the General Chair, the selected Panel Moderators will take lead responsibility for refining the theme of their panel, inviting and confirming panelists, coordinating the panelists’ preparation of their remarks, and leading the discussion during the panel session.
- Please also propose possible Panelists who could be invited to participate.
Please submit Panel proposals, in PDF form, as well as any preliminary questions or comments about Panels, to Prof. Murray Metcalfe, 4S4D Panels Chair.
