CONF./CFP- Int'l Council for Central & East European Studies, July 26-31, 2010

Posted by: Tova Höjdestrand <>

Dear Colleagues:

We have the honour to invite the international academic community to the
VIII ICCEES World Congress in Stockholm 2010, to participate in a wide
scholarly discussion with the overriding theme:

"Eurasia: Prospects for Wider Cooperation"

Deadline for panel and paper proposals: 28 February 2009

On 26-31 July 2010, the World Congress of the International Council for
Central and East European Studies will take place in Stockholm, Sweden.
The Swedish Society for the Study of Russia, Central and Eastern Europe
and Central Asia invites all interested scholars to submit proposals for
panels, papers and round-table discussions.

The processes of European integration and wider cooperation across Eurasia
not only impact upon geographical spaces but also leave their mark upon
cultural spaces. These processes make communication between languages,
histories, religions, traditions, legacies and memories more complex.
Humanities and social science scholars are therefore invited to present
the results of new research in the study of developments in the cultural,
political, social and economic processes underway in Central and Eastern
Europe and the former Soviet Union. For further information about the
general themes of the Congress, see the Congress webpage

Proposals for panels normally include a chair, up to three speakers and a
discussant. The proposal should include: the title of the panel; name,
rank/position and academic affiliation of the participants; and, if
possible at this stage, titles of the speakers' presentations.
Only proposals submitted electronically will be considered for inclusion
in the Congress. Proposals must be submitted in English - irrespective of
the language to be used by the panellists at the Congress. Panels must be
international in composition. The allotted time for a panel is 90 minutes.
Proposals for individual papers - not included in a proposal for a panel -
may be included in the Congress programme by the decision of the
International Academic Committee. Such papers may be presented in special
sessions or included in other panels. Paper proposals should include a
short preliminary abstract (a final one will be submitted later).

The International Academic Committee will send all scholars whose
proposals have been accepted, an official letter of invitation, which can
be used to apply for funding and/or obtaining a visa, by 1 July 2009. Only
after that, registration begins and the final abstracts are submitted
through our online abstract system. Deadline for registration is 30
October 2009.
