Dear colleagues!

As we are waiting for your panel proposals, we would like to give you some additional information. We hope that this will encourage those of you who are thinking about participating to send in your proposals.

If you plan to organize a panel, please take into consideration the following information.

  • The range of subjects expected may vary, as long as they remain within the scope of scholarly interest in Ethiopia and the Horn of Africa and its interconnections with the outside world.  

  • To submit your proposal, you are kindly asked to use the form available at: (under panels&papers)

  • A description of the panel is essential and it should be clear and comprehensive, not exceeding 300 words.

  • The deadline for submitting proposals is 31 August 2014.

  • The list of the selected panels will be published on our website by early November 2014 at the latest, and it will be followed by a call for papers.

  • The tasks of the panel organizers include selecting paper proposals from among those sent to our website, which we will then redirect to you, as well as delivering all the necessary information concerning your panels to all interested participants.

  • Please note the necessity to assist Conference participants from the Horn of Africa in searching for funds to cover costs of travel and accommodation, using various resources available to you, as we can only provide a limited number of scholarships.
