Instructions for Submitting

As explained on the “Call for Submissions” page, the 16th Polar Law Symposium is organized around three types of sessions: lectures, seminars, and workshops

Submitted lectures are scheduled in 60-minute slots and should be 30-40 minutes in length, with the remainder of the time devoted to questions and discussion. These are, in other words, “full-length” lectures suitable for eventual publication as articles in the 2023 Yearbook of Polar Law or other such venues. 40 minutes is specified as the maximum presentation time. The author should identify the lecture as belonging to the “Life World” or “Law World” line of the Symposium. Those offering lectures for presentation on the Symposium program should send a proposed lecture title and an abstract of 300-500 words to the Symposium organizers by email to Jóhan Lamhauge <JohanL@setur.fo> not later than 30 April 2023. The subject line of your email message should read “Submission for the 2023 Polar Law Symposium”. To submit a proposal for a lecture, please use the Proposal for a Lecture Form, downloadable here

Proposals for seminars are to be submitted by a Convener on behalf of all active participants. The Convener should specify the topic, and title, of the proposed seminar, along with a brief explanation (prospectus) of no more than 100 words. Prior to submission, the Convener must have recruited three colleagues, each committed to presenting a paper (15-20 minutes) with a maximum delivery time of 20 minutes in the seminar session. Each of the papers should fit the announced topic and should be somehow coordinated with the other two papers. In addition to the topic of the proposed seminar and the 100-word prospectus, the Convener should specify the names, titles, and institutional identity of each of the proposed speakers, along with the proposed titles of each of their proposed papers and an abstract of up to 300 words of each. The Convener should should identify the seminar as belonging to the “Life World” or “Law World” line of the Symposium. Seminars are scheduled in 90-minute slots, wherein the Convener should very briefly introduce the Seminar and the speakers and moderate the session. 30-45 minutes should be available for discussion which may proceed following each of the papers or may be held at the end, as the Convener decides. Proposals for seminars should include the abovementioned items and should be submitted to the Symposium organizers by email to Jóhan Lamhauge <JohanL@setur.fo> not later than 30 April 2023. The subject line of your email message should read “Submission for the 2023 Polar Law Symposium”. To submit a proposal for a seminar, the Convener should use the Proposal for a Seminar Form, downloadable here.

Proposals for workshops are to be submitted by a Convener on behalf of all active participants.

Prior to submission, the Convener must have recruited two colleagues, each committed to sending a paper to be discussed at the workshop for posting on this web site by 30 September 2023 at the latest, and the Convener commits to insuring delivery.
