Conference Programme & Schedule
Presenting a Paper?
- Paper-givers are encouraged to bring their own laptops, especially for panels taking place in City Hall.
- If you are presenting a paper, please ensure you arrive at least 15 minutes before the session starts.
- All sessions will run for 90 minutes and should be structured to allow a maximum of 60 minutes for all presentations, with at least 30 minutes for discussion and questions.
- Most panels have 3 or 4 papers, which will give each person up to 15 or 20 minutes to present, but please adjust accordingly if required. Some panels will have less papers and so will have longer for presentations and/or Q&A.
- All rooms are equipped with screens and projectors. It would be very helpful if you could ensure that all presentations are uploaded to the designated laptop in advance of the panel commencing.

PSA Specialist Groups
PSA Specialist Groups are invited to submit proposals and the panel allocation criteria is as follows:
Equality and Diversity at the PSA Annual International Conference
The PSA is committed to promoting equality and diversity in all areas of its work. As such, all panels submitted to the annual international conference must endeavour to reflect the diversity of the profession and gender balance – we will be taking this into account when accepting proposals. PSA Specialist Group convenors should make active efforts to involve BME speakers as a means of reflecting the importance of this issue to the PSA E&D agenda.
