Gatineau 2024 Call for papers Symposium

The Symposium format

The goal of these symposia will be to foster collaboration between PUPP / ENAI / CSAI researchers and others to facilitate publication in the field of research on integrity. Five symposia will be held on the themes below:

The symposia will be modelled on the format of a Research-Education-Training scientific event. Each symposium will involve 10-15 persons who will be invited to submit a contribution in advance of the conference, based on a proposal submitted by individuals or teams before the deadline. Teams members may be researchers and/or doctoral students. The participants commit themselves to:  

  • Write on the theme established by the symposium coordinators; 
  • Submit a first draft of their paper three months before the symposium; 
  • Attend both days of the symposium in Gatineau / Ottawa, Canada; 
  • Read all other participants’ papers before they arrive at the symposium to actively contribute to the discussions; 
  • Act as the lead speaker for one other paper, i.e., prepare more in-depth comments and questions about the paper; 
  • Rework their paper based on comments received at the symposium into a final version ready for publication; 
  • Meet the deadlines set by the symposium coordinators to ensure all papers are published in a timely fashion. 

The five symposia will each provide an opportunity to discuss the submitted papers and offer suggestions to the authors. When the symposium is over, the papers will be submitted to an editor for a joint publication in the form of a book or journal special issue that will have been preapproved to reduce any delays.

The symposia will also be open to observers who wish to listen to the discussions without submitting a paper.

A coordinator(s) for each of the symposia has been appointed in January 2023. All coordinators are members of the PUPP team. The coordinators are responsible for writing a call for papers for their symposium, selecting the teams that will participate, managing the organization of the symposium, and finding a publisher or journal for the publication.

The PUPP will be responsible for the general organization of the conference and the symposia (technical support, accommodation, meals, etc.). PUPP members who are eligible will receive funding. All other participants will have to pay their own costs. Note: Presenters need to be in person at the conference. No online presenters.
