Call for papers

Dear colleagues,

As many of you know, the triannual NoPSA Congress was supposed to be held at the University of Iceland in August 2020 but was postponed until August 2021. Many of the workshop leaders and paper authors decided to continue their participation for 2021. In addition to that we did open a call for additional workshops in the autumn and now call for for additional papers to be included in the proposed workshops.

If your paper has already been accepted for the NoPSA Congress 2020 you will not have to resubmit your proposal, but you workshop leader will ask you to confirm your participation.

For now, we continue the planning of NoPSA 2021 to be held in Reykjavik in August 2021. However, we might be forced to move the NoPSA Congress online if there will still be uncertainties about restrictions (e.g. travel restrictions) due to the corona outbreak and the outlook for August. This decision will be made no later than at the end of March 2021. While we sincerely hope that the NoPSA Congress can be held in Reykjavik in August we have to be open for the possibility to move the Congress online. In accordance with the uncertainties of how 2021 will look the early bird fee registration has been set to the late date of 31 May 2021.

The deadline to send in abstracts for additional papers is 1 February 2021 
We kindly ask you to send your abstract and title to the chairs of the workshop. Information about the email addresses for each workshop leaders are here below together with descriptions for each workshop.

You can apply by sending an email to the chairs of the workshops by 1 February 2021 containing:

  1. a) the paper title,
    b) Abstract (150-200 words) and,
    c) the name(s) of the author(s), institutional affiliation and email address.
