CALL FOR PAPERS
The fifth meeting of the International Seminar of Young Tibetologists will be held in Saint-Petersburg, Russia, from the 3rd to the 7th of September, 2018. The conveners of the Seminar invite you to submit your abstract (max. 300 words) and CV.
Registration on the EasyChair website will be possible from June 1st 2017 https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=isyt2018). You will first need to create an EasyChair account in order to submit your abstract and CV. Instructions for this can be found on the ISYT website (http://isyt.org/HowtosubmitISYT2018.pdf). Those participants who previously had an EasyChair account can update the account information, if necessary, and use it for the ISYT 2018 registration.
The deadline for submitting your CV and abstract is the 1st of August, 2017. Please note that abstracts which exceed 300 words will not be taken into consideration.
Your submission will undergo a thorough review process, after which the conveners will notify you of the outcome. You will receive this notification by email by the beginning of November 2017.
a) No more than six years should have passed since finishing your final degree, or
b) No more than six years should have passed since your first academic appointment.
If these guidelines are unclear in any way, or not applicable to your situation, please do not hesitate to contact us. Masters students, who, at the time of the Seminar, will have graduated, are required to provide a letter of recommendation from their supervisor.
Participants are generally required to present a paper. Papers will be subjected to a time limit of 30 minutes (including 10 minutes for questions) and may be presented in English or Tibetan.
All papers should present the results of original research, and should be based on the use of primary sources. Participants should not present papers that have been given at other conferences or published elsewhere.
We regret to inform you that we will probably only be able to support a very limited number of Tibetan applicants from the PRC and South Asia. Please let us know if you think you will need funding for your participation in the ISYT 2018 conference.
We will be accepting a limited number of observers (reduced fee). If interested, please email us, providing a short biography and a CV.
We are looking forward to receiving your abstract, and welcoming you to Saint-Petersburg!
If you have any questions please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
