Apply for the Nick Ryan Bursuary!

To honour the work of its longstanding chair Nick Ryan, CAA International provides the annual Nick Ryan Bursary. The Nick Ryan Bursary will be chosen from this year’s student paper presenters. The award will go towards the costs of attending next year’s conference in Kraków, up to a maximum of 1,000 Euros.

The winner will be chosen after the conference via an online survey by all CAA members who attended CAA Tübingen. The person with the most votes will be awarded the bursary, subject to their attendance at CAA 2019. If the winning presenter is unable to attend CAA 2019, the award will be given to the second place individual. The CAA Steering Committee reserves the right for a final decision if they feel that the voting system has been misused.

If you wish to apply for the 2018 Nick Ryan Bursary award, are a student, and will present a paper at the CAA conference in Tübingen, please email the Student/Low Income Officer with the following details:

  • Full name, paper title, session and student status.

These nominated student papers will be highlighted in the conference pack and all delegates are encouraged to attend these papers.

Call for papers and posters is OPEN

The CAA Tübingen 2018 call for papers and posters is OPEN and will remain open until 11:59 PM CET the 29th of October (Sunday).
Please go to the OCS website to log-in and submit your paper or poster abstract clicking here, or by clicking on the Submissions/Registration tab above. You will need to log-in: go to User Home, click on CAA 2018 and then look for the Submission link at the bottom of the page under the Conference Information header. You can select your session from the Track drop-down menu.
You will find a list of the proposed sessions (called “Tracks” in OCS) on this website. When you click on a track you will be taken to the abstract for the session. If you would like to read all the track abstracts, you can find them at the bottom of the page or you can download a PDF of the abstracts. If you do not find a track that fits your proposed paper, please select the General Papers session option. The local organisers with CAA´s Scientific Committee will regroup these papers to new meaningful sessions.
Given the various formats of the proposed sessions, there is no standard paper length. Instead, the length of your paper will be decided by the track director. Please indicate the corresponding author if there is more than one author. CAA allows one corresponding author for each paper, and the corresponding author must be a member of CAA International before the conference begins. It is expected that the corresponding author will present the paper at the conference. The corresponding author does not necessarily have to be the first author. CAA allows an individual to be the corresponding author for only one paper and to be the first author for only one paper, author on multiple papers and may also serve in other capacities (e.g., session organiser, roundtable discussant, panelist, lighting/flash talk presenter, poster presenter, etc…).

If you are proposing a poster, please select the General Poster session option.
Abstracts for papers and posters should be no more 250 words excluding session title, author names, affiliations, and email addresses and 3 – 5 keywords. Please note, the official language of the conference is English and all submissions should be in English. If English is not your first language, it is strongly suggested that you have a fluent English speaker review your abstract before submission.
