8th ADR Research Network Roundtable
Monday 9th and Tuesday 10th December 2019
La Trobe Law School, La Trobe University, City Campus, 360 Collins Street, Melbourne, VIC Australia
Call for Paper Proposals
The 8th Annual Research Roundtable of the Australasian Dispute Resolution Research Network (ADRRN) will be held in Melbourne, 9-10 December 2019.
ADRRN roundtables provide a collaborative and supportive research environment for work-shopping papers-in-progress. Draft papers are distributed ahead of time to participants, to enable thoughtful and constructive quality feedback. Time allocated for a presentation is usually 30 minutes for presentation, and 30 minutes for feedback and discussion. Two primary commentators are appointed for each paper.
The ADRRN is now calling for papers for the 2019 roundtable to be held at the La Trobe Law School, La Trobe University Melbourne, City Campus. Paper proposals of no more than 300 words should be submitted via email to email@example.com by 31 July 2019. Presenters will be required to submit, in addition to draft papers, a short blog post of no more than 1000 words prior to the roundtable. Blog posts will be published on the ADRRN’s webpage: https://adrresearch.net/ .
Paper proposals that consider dispute resolution from a scholarly, critical and/or empirical perspective are welcome. We particularly encourage submissions from postgraduate students and early career researchers. All proposals will be considered. Papers must not have been published or submitted for publication, as the focus is work in progress.
A selection panel will select round table papers from abstracts submitted. The following selection criteria will be applied:
- Papers take a scholarly, critical and/or empirical perspective on an area of dispute resolution;
- The round table will include a spread of participants across stages of career; and
- A well-balanced range of work will be presented at the round table to provide diversity, to develop the field and to enable cohesive discussion.
Participation is on a self-funded basis.
Attendance at the Round Table is only open to individuals who are contributing to the scholarly discussions by presenting a paper, or commentating and/or chairing a session.
Deadline for paper proposals: 31 July 2019
(300 word maximum plus short bio, to firstname.lastname@example.org)
Date for notification: 16 August 2019
Draft (full) papers + blog post due: 31 October 2019 (to send to participants early Nov.)
