Call for Posters for SLS 2017 Annual Conference, Dublin

24th March 2017

This is a call for posters for the SLS 2017 Annual Conference to be held at University College Dublin from Tuesday 5Friday 8 September.  This year’s theme is ‘The Diverse Unities of Law’ though posters are welcome on any issue.

Please submit a draft electronic version of the poster you would like to present via EasyChair by Friday 5 May.  The conference organisers will review all the submissions and select the best to be displayed at the conference with reference to:

  • The quality of the research presented in the draft poster;
  • The visual impact of the draft poster; and
  • The effectiveness of the use of the poster medium in presenting the research.

Decisions will be communicated by the end of May and those selected to present will have the opportunity to revise their poster in advance of the conference in September.

To submit your draft poster please use this link to EasyChair https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sls2017 and select ‘Submit a Poster’.

Full instructions on how to use the EasyChair system can be found here: https://gallery.mailchimp.com/47624183ad52dd8428c97d3f6/files/5d5040db-dc38-47f7-818f-e21dd3703177/Making_a_submission_to_SLS_2017.14.pdf

However, please contact Jed Meers at jed.meers@york.ac.uk if you experience any problems.

The SLS Best Poster Prize is awarded to the best poster displayed at the conference.  It is announced after the conference and is awarded to the prize winner(s) at the SLS Annual Reception in London in early March.  Posters are judged against the criteria outlined above: the quality of the research presented; the visual impact of the posters and the effectiveness of the use of the poster medium to present research.  The prize consists of £250.00 prize money and the winning poster is displayed alongside previous prize winners at the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, Russell Square, London.

All speakers and poster presenters are expected to book and pay to attend the conference and in order to minimise the risk of late cancellations we will be asking all presenters to register by the end of June in order to secure their place on the programme.    Booking information will be circulated in due course.

Please contact Professor Rhona Smith, the Poster Convenor, at Rhona.Smith@newcastle.ac.uk if you have any queries.
